Nineteenth Sunday in Ordinary Times

Jesus’ instructions on how to be ready for the coming
judgment continue in the stories and sayings found in
today’s Gospel. We are not to be like the greedy rich
man in last Sunday’s Gospel who planned to store his
great harvest in barns rather than share it. We are, rather,
to share our wealth with those in need. The antidote
for the anxiety brought on by the coming judgment
is to relinquish our possessions and provide for
the needs of others. Our treasure will be in heaven
where it will not wear out or be destroyed.

The other major way to be ready for the coming judgment
is to be watchful. In Luke’s Gospel, Jesus tells a
parable about watchfulness to begin making this point.
We must be like servants waiting for the master’s return
from a wedding banquet, which, even now, can
last for a few days in the Middle East. We must be
watchful so that even if the master comes after midnight,
we will be ready for him. This is what the coming
of the Son of Man will be like
