A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:
God entrusts, indeed invests, a measure of His wealth of good, to each
to share His work and increase the Kingdom. He gives a share to each
supplies the needed grace so that with self-will and diligence, each
achieve good for the kingdom, measure for measure. Each day God asks us
use the talents He gives in the circumstances of our lives and
as we receive the days' duties and surprises. We labor to return this
measured in Love. All that one does, in Love, is done in and for God in
One contemplates these "little things done with great love" of each
sees every one who loved God courageously and whom we recognize as a
'saint.' That is our own calling as well, to courageously achieve good
the love and gifts we receive from God, for God. That is our
receive and bestow His wealth, by sharing in His labor that is love
out for all.
Each soul is created in the very image and likeness of God. Each is
gifted, entrusted, empowered and dispatched to labor diligently,
giving what is received so as to return a wealth of love to God from
all love is bestowed--indeed, the very One Who is Love. What is
be something very beautiful for God.
O Lord, may we trust that whatever You give and ask of each life, You
and intend to achieve. Relieve our fear and grace us to courageously
You loved us first. Your loving, passionate embrace of the cross for
redemption, is the gift likewise entrusted for us to embrace daily in
own lives. May we lovingly persevere in You in Whom all is achieved.
