March 11 — The image from today’s Gospel of Christ driving out the money changers and merchants is one we need to give some thought to. When consumerism and materialism, and not our faith in God, become the centre of our lives it can be a real problem. Good stewards allow their faith to infuse all of their money man-agement decisions. We can find balance amid the rampant con-sumerism and materialism in our society by sharing first, saving second, and spending third.
