Epiphany 8 - Year A
1 Corinthians 4:1-5
What does it mean to be judged by G*D and is that different than being judged by Wealth or Money or Mammon or Profit?
One way of coming at this is to ask about where they end up.
G*D’s judgment seems to end up with mercy outweighing justice and steadfast love taking precedence over disappointment.
Wealth’s judgment seems to end up with there never being enough for all and so compassion takes a back seat to separating oneself from all others.
A) Who or what won’t take mercy away from you? (Matthew 12:7; James 3:17)
B) Who or what won’t eventually take your resources away from you? (Ecclesiastes 2:21)
A) Invisible Hand of G*D and Death
B) Invisible Hand of the Market and Death
