The Bible: The Power of Rebirth

The Rich Man and Lazarus

Reflection on the Gospel of the Twenty-Sixth Sunday In Ordinary Time

 

Luke 16:19-31

Well, it is easy for us to condemn being rich but that isn’t the message. The rich man isn’t being condemned to hell because he was rich. He was just too self-centered. The wealthy need to be altruistic and share resources, including wealth, health, time and talents, for the wellbeing of others.

The meaning of the name ‘Lazarus’ means, – God is my helper. Truly, the rich man relied on his riches, his wealth but Lazarus was totally dependent on God. Lazarus was a man with no hope and full of suffering. He did not complain but was patient and relied on God. God’s angles were guarding him during his test and took him to Abraham’s bosom immediately after his life on earth. Regardless of how insignificant or wretched we are in this world, we are under God’s eye view and guards of His angels. God will reward us for our faithfulness to him.
