God Won’t Ask

Pastor’s Column

2nd Sunday Ordinary Time

January 20, 2019

This insightful piece was shared with me by a parishioner many years ago and I wanted to pass it on to you with a few updates of my own. Sometimes a different perspective on the teachings of Jesus can make us think a little bit about what our real priorities in life ought to be and if we are overemphasizing only passing things.

 

GOD WON’T ASK what kind of car that you drove –

He will ask how many times you used your car for the good of others though.

 

GOD WON’T ASK what the square footage of your house was or its value or view –

He will ask how many people felt welcomed when they entered your home though.

 

GOD WON’T ASK what your salary was or what position or acclaim you had on earth –

He will ask you if you compromised your character to obtain it though.

 

GOD WON’T ASK how many times you worked out at the gym –

He will ask how many workouts you permitted him to exercise on your soul though.

 

GOD WON’T ASK about the clothes in your closet or how healthy you ate –

He will ask how many people you helped clothe or the hungry you fed though.

 

GOD WON’T ASK what your job title was –

He will ask if you performed your job to the best of your ability though.

 

GOD WON’T ASK in what neighborhood you lived –

He will ask you how you treated your neighbor though.

 

GOD WON’T ASK about the color of your skin –

He will ask about the content of your character though.

 

GOD WON’T ASK how many friends you had –

He will ask how many people to whom you tried to be a friend to though.
