Luke 12:32-40

2022-08-03 — Anyone will tell you that the problem with purses that don’t wear out is that they go out of style.

BIBLE PASSAGE — “Do not be afraid, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. Sell your possessions, and give alms. Make purses for yourselves that do not wear out, an unfailing treasure in heaven, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. “Be dressed for action and have your lamps lit; be like those who are waiting for their master to return from the wedding banquet, so that they may open the door for him as soon as he comes and knocks. Blessed are those slaves whom the master finds alert when he comes; truly I tell you, he will fasten his belt and have them sit down to eat, and he will come and serve them. If he comes during the middle of the night, or near dawn, and finds them so, blessed are those slaves. “But know this: if the owner of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have let his house be broken into. You also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an unexpected hour.” — Proper 14, Series C

    Well, I had a Kate Spade handbag. And it wore quite well throughout the years. So well that when I was doing my clinical pastoral education, an indigent woman patient spotted it, said she would love to have it, so I gave it to her on the spot. The lesson I learned was that when you give alms, give what you would like to receive yourself. So does anyone have a Kate Spade bag they’d like to donate to me?
