Year A, Epiphany 8
For weeks now we have been reading the Sermon on the Mount. Starting with the blessings, calling us to be witnesses, and laying out a vision of life transformed by God’s love, Jesus gives us the New Covenant. This week Jesus invites us to commit to live in God’s love. Commit to living in and by the New Covenant. He does this by contrasting life in which money is our master and life in which God is our master. Choosing God is the easy part. Living that way turns out to be the real challenge.
