Eighteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time
Luke 12:13-21

What does it mean to grow rich for God? Growing rich for God has nothing to do with money. Perhaps it means accumulating the treasures of the spiritual life like love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, kindness, mercy. These are riches that glorify God and magnify his kingdom. The person who accumulates these riches is wealthy and wise beyond reckoning.
