Readings: Prov 31:10-13, 19-20, 30-31. 1Thes 5:1-6. Mt 25:14-30
In receiving life, each one of us has received a stewardship. Not exactly the same kind of stewardship as everyone else, but a stewardship all the same. To make good use of that stewardship, to make it bear fruit, to apply it for the benefit and growth of humanity. This is what we’re all called to. This is what will determine whether we’re men or women of virtue. And this is what will determine achievement of most of what we desire in life.
The other option is doing and being less. Even though this option may not necessarily be chosen consciously, it seems like it’s what comes to us naturally. Whenever there’s no conscious effort to apply what we’ve been given, we tend to fall into comfort, convenience and contentment (albeit false contentment). Inexorably, this results into retrogression. We forget that it’s in striving that we grow. And it’s in growth that we’re rewarded, growth begetting more growth.
May Jesus Christ grant us the grace to excel in our stewardships.
