Jesus offers lessons on trust in today’s gospel. He invites us to reflect on our relationships with others…in situations when mutual trust is strong, as well as times when that trust was somehow broken. This then leads  to Jesus’ comments on the challenge of the “divided heart” — trying to serving two masters with competing values.

What life lessons on trust did you learn growing up? How have these lessons stayed with you today? Remember a

time when trust was broken within your family or with a good friend. What did it take to restore that trust? And what personal and family experience do you have of living with a divided heart?
