EIGHTEENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME C Lectionary #114
What's important to us? What do we value most highly? What does God think is important?

Ecclesiastes 1:2; 2:21–23. Three centuries before Jesus, an author writing in the Wisdom tradition offered this rather downbeat view of human existence.

Colossians 3:1–5, 9–11. Paul offers a reason for the community members to change their ways: They are living in Christ, so they should live as Christ.

Luke 12:13–21. Like Qoheleth in the first reading, Jesus has a rather downbeat view of the quest for wealth.
