Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:
September 1, A.D. 2007
Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:
1 Thessalonians 4:9-11
Psalm 98:1, 7-8, 9
A reflection on today's Scripture:
Sit and meditate for a moment about all that God has entrusted to us.
Going back to Genesis He entrusted us with all His creation on earth. He entrusts us with the proper care of our souls as well as entrusts us with the birth and nurturing of new human life. He entrusts us with the care of each other regardless of whom we are. In the Gospels He entrusts us with the mission to further the Gospel and spread the kingdom. It does not take long to see that God has entrusted us and trusts us with much.
And what are we doing with it?
Are we caring for each other, nurturing our souls as well as those of our children and others? Are we feeding the poor and caring for the sick and aged? Are we sharing our love of God with others? Or, are we living solitary lives not doing these things and not sharing our love with others?
The long parable in today’s Gospel is straightforward: we have been entrusted with much and we are expected to use it and make it grow. Not doing so is gravely wrong as the parable explains.
It is that simple.
