Eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time

One of the great challenges of teaching college students is getting them to understand the difference between could and should. Just because one could do something does not mean that one should do something. Today’s gospel speaks to this point, recalling to us that we cannot serve two masters and the availability of various choices does not necessitate our attempt to involve ourselves in all sorts of options. Commitment may seem passé to some but to anyone who wants to move towards any success, particularly spiritual, moving in one direction usually provides the best route.
