Parable Of The Talents


Extract

How Many Gifts Have I Created?

The Master said to the servant whom he had given one talent to and who buried it, “You wicked, lazy servant … throw this useless servant into the darkness outside, where there will be wailing and grinding of teeth”. (Matthew 25:30)

ThoughtsThought

Which servant best symbolises me? Am I among the ones who multiplied their gifts or the one who sat upon his gift!

Maybe I should simply ask myself, do I give more than I receive?

ReflectionsReflection

Lord Jesus, help me to see more clearly the gifts I possess and understand how I can use them for your greater honour and glory. Amen.

Prayer: Abandonment (Charles de Foucauld)

Father, I abandon myself into your hands;
do with me what you will.
Whatever you may do, I thank you;
I am ready for all, I accept all.
Let only your will be done in me.
I wish no more than this, O Lord.
Into your hands I commend my soul:
I offer it to you with all the love of my heart,
for I love you, Lord, and so need to give myself,
to surrender myself into your hands without reserve
and with boundless confidence, for you are my Father.
