JESUS TALKS ABOUT MOTIVES

Today’s Gospel Reading: Luke 14:12-14 -THIRTY-FIRST WEEK OF THE YEAR: Monday, 5 November 2018

Jesus uses the example of inviting the needy to dinner to ensure that our concern for others is authentic.

The motions of Christian charity can mask aspirations very much at variance with the Christian ideal. The motives of notoriety, public holiness, the accumulation of indebtedness from others and the flight from the ordinary and anonymous can all support our work for those in need. It is only when there is no chance for personal and social remuneration that we can be certain that we are acting out of sincere love and not from self-interest that masquerades as Christian love.

Concern for others can be motivated by self-enhancement or self-sacrifice.
