An ironic title, given the gospel text?
This Sunday, we hear of Lazarus and the rich man, known by some as Dives, although that may or may not be what his brothers called him.
Paul warns that the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil; but it’s too late for Dives. Isn’t it?
May the God of Abraham hold you close; the God of Moses lead you in paths of righteousness and peace.
May you be rich in mercy and generous in spirit.
May God’s Son our Saviour Jesus Christ, who raised Lazarus from the dead, keep alive in you the promise of his saving grace,
in this world and the next. Amen.
