Zealous of good works!

As I was reading Scriptures, I noted several reference points related to our salvation and good works. Faith is great, but it must be accompanied by good works – we will be judged based on our good works – our use of Time and Talents are measured by our good works. Reflecting on Stewardship, I thought about the many times I planned to participate in charitable events, but either didn’t – or did, and grumbled about it. I read a homily from St. John Chrysostom who said “Do you see that our part is necessary, not merely works, but zealous; we should with all alacrity, with a becoming earnestness, go forward in virtue.”

In other words, all of our Stewardship efforts must be done with zeal, energy, happiness and a positive attitude. Something to think about – I know I will!
