Faith is invisible, but it's effect can be seen in our lives. When we live by faith, our lives look different than when we live only according to the world. Today's Gospel gives us a little test: Where your treasure is, there your heart will be. This little tool can help us examine if we are living by faith, or merely claiming to. Our faith shapes our private/personal lives, and our public life. These readings challenge us who claim to have faith, to live bold lives, sharing in the ministry of Jesus, the bringing about God's Kingdom.
