Reflections of Faith
Read and be inspired by a reflection based on today's Gospel made by members of the Verbum Dei Family in Manila.
September 1, 2018 - Saturday
Gospel: Matthew 25:14-30
Merry Christmas! Well at least here in the Phillipines! “All roads” lead to Charity institution for “gift giving” from extra bonuses received! Well done!
But wait, this parable means more than that. We are challenged to emulate Jesus by using all that God has given for the sake of the church- his people. In anticipation of his return, to continue to do the work each one of us is called for - faithfully, consistently and wise.
However, people are not the same. The “foolish” may take time to relax, neglect his work and worst, take advantage of what he has for his own selfish ambitions. For this type of character, there will be regrettable consequences.
So let us be good stewards of the gifts entrusted to us. In giving it is not measured by its physical attributes for God looks at our heart.
