How church money gets spent seems to always be a tense issue. Everybody’s got an opinion (whether they put money in the plate or not!). Financial mismanagement is being alleged in today’s epistle lesson from Second Corinthians (4:13-5:5). In a church that St. Paul founded, some are accusing him of taking the money for the Jerusalem church and using it for himself. And so Paul writes back to his parishioners saying that despite their false claims against him, Paul will not lose heart. Paul will continue to preach the gospel. What about us? Do we let false assumptions or comments about us get us down? How do we, like Paul, make Jesus’ love the only opinion that matters in our lives? See you Sunday, Father Seth+
