Gospel - Matthew 25: 14-30
We are drawing to the end of the liturgical year and we are coming to the end of St Matthews gospel. The gospel this week is the 'Parable of the Talents' and how the servants use the "gift" of money that has been given to them by their master. For us of course we can see it as the free gifts that God has given to each of us. We are individuals with gifts given to us in different proportions which we are called to use and share those gifts. In that using and sharing, we will receive back many times that which we expend. How do we react and respond to the free gift that God has given us?
We need to also take God's way of acting seriously as God will demand an account from each of us for the gifts that have been entrusted to us to be developed and grown. He gives to each according to their ability freely without having direction. It poses a question to each of us as to how will we be able to respond to the Master when he returns and account for our stewardship of our gifts.
