JACKPOT

 

In our lottery — and sweepstakes — obsessed culture, it is common to ask ourselves or others what they would do if they won. In today’s first reading, Solomon certainly hits the jackpot. What prize could be greater than having God Almighty agree to give you whatever you ask for?

 

Out of all the things he could have asked for, Solo-mon chose to ask for understanding, and was rewarded with it. We would do well to wonder what we would ask for if God made us the same offer. Actually God does make us the same offer each and every day, by granting us another day of life, a bit of the earth’s goods, some gift or ability, some call to goodness, some portion of the divine will. Each of these is a “prize.” We should stop and examine what we are going to do with our prize: keep it or use it selfishly, or put it at the service of the spread of the gospel?

EL GRAN PREMIO

 

En nuestra lotería –y en las muchas rifas de nuestra cultura– se tiene la costumbre de preguntarnos a nosotros mismos y de preguntarles a los demás qué haríamos si ganamos. En la primera lectura de hoy, Salomón ciertamente se gana el premio mayor. ¿Qué premio podrá ser más grande que tener a Dios todopoderoso ofrecerte lo que quieras?

 

De todas las cosas que podemos pedir, Salomón escogió pedir sabiduría y le fue concedida. ¿No sería bueno preguntarnos qué pediríamos si Dios nos hiciera esa oferta? En realidad Dios nos hace esa misma oferta cada día, al darnos otro día de vida, un poco de los bienes de la tierra, algún don o talento, un llamado a la bondad, algo de la voluntad divina. Cada uno de esos bienes es un “premio”. Debemos detenernos y examinar lo que vamos a hacer con nuestro premio: ¿guardarlo o usarlo con egoísmo, o ponerlo al servicio de la proclamación del Evangelio?
