Focus on the Sunday Gospel for the 27th Sunday in Ordinary Time.
Use this unit study to help teach children that being jealous of others or what they have is wrong. It is based on the Parable of the Landowner and the Tenants in the Gospel of St. Matthew 21:33-43.
God loves us very much. He promises to give us what we need to stay close to Him, but sometimes what He provides isn't what we want. His blessings do not seem to match with what we expect to have. When this happens, we can become unhappy with ourselves or what we have and begin wanting what others have. God wants us to be happy with our blessings, which are really gifts from Him to us.
