Gospel: Luke 19:11–28
“I tell you, to all those who have, more will be given.” (cf. Luke 19:26)
All of us are gifted by God, but not all of us are developing these gifts that we have received. This is the point of our Gospel today. How much you were given by God?
Jesus is inviting us to invest our lives in things that would develop our talents to enrich others. This, in turn, gives us the real purpose of our lives as faithful servants of Jesus. It is a great delight for Jesus to see our talents being used for the good of others and being offered for the glory of God. “To all those who have, more will be given.”
