Money is something that many people worry about, and most couples fight over. When it comes to our money, the Lord certainly calls us to be good stewards of it. But he doesn’t want it to be a source of anxiety or conflict.
Just consider what Jesus told his apostles in today’s gospel. He instructed them to:
- Travel lightly;
- Live simply;
- Trust that the Lord would provide; and
- Be concerned, not about money, but with doing the Lord’s work.
This was his commandment to his apostles. And it’s his good advice for us.
