Ordinary Time, 5th Sunday (A) Our political system rewards those who build themselves up and pull others down. But does this really lead to a fulfilling life? St. Paul doesn't think so. And neither did Dr. Tetsu Nakamura. He used his gifts to build up the poor of Pakistan and Afghanistan and was hailed as a hero. What about us -- are we playing the game of promoting ourselves or are we building others up? I felt constantly drained until I turned to a relationship with Jesus. He blessed me so that I could bless others. You have been blessed! Give and serve generously this week.
