Weep and Groan

“Look here, you rich people: Weep and groan with anguish because of all the terrible troubles ahead of you.” – James 5: 1 (NLT)

The Gospel reminds us of being rich. To become rich is not a sin, but it is a sin when we are possessed by our richness. 

Jesus in the Gospel is not only talking about the wealth regarding our worldly things but it is the capacity and talents that we have within ourselves. Our human tendency usually feels comfortable with what we have or might have - including claiming our personal gifts. But we forget that everything we have is only temporary. 

As we are about to begin the season of Lent, let us then question ourselves: what do I possess or what should I let go - out of my richness - that disturbs me to share?
