TODAY’S WORD…

.

Jesus said,

“To those who use well what they are given,

even more will be given, and they will have an abundance.

But from those who do nothing,

even what little they have will be taken away.”

.

– Matthew 25:29 (NLT)

REFLECTION…

.

We need to respond to grace

by making a genuine effort right through our life,

and help in building the kingdom of God.

.

If we use well all the gifts of nature and grace which God has given us,

thankfully and dutifully applying ourselves to put these blessings to good use,

our efforts will undoubtedly produce even more blessings.

.

If we appreciate the treasures the Lord has given us

– life, the gift of faith, grace –

then, as Christians, we will make every effort to make them bear fruit.

It does not matter how many gifts we have received;

what matters is our disposition

and our generosity in putting them to good use.

.

God expects us to strive to put to good use the gifts we have received;

the talents He has given us

– and He lavishly rewards those who respond to His grace.

.

.

.

QUOTE…

.

“Don’t lose your effectiveness;

instead, trample on your selfishness.

You think your life is for yourself?

Your life is for God,

for the good of all men though your love for our Lord.

.

Your buried talent, dig it up again!

Make it yield, and you will taste the joy…”

.

– St. Josemaria Escriva

.
