Reflection on Today’s Gospel, November 13, 2011

In today’s gospel, Jesus tells the parable of the servants with the talents.  God made each of us out of love.  He gifted us with certain talents and aptitudes that are ours alone.  He does not give us these treasures to keep to ourselves, but to further His kingdom on earth.

Think about this:  If we fail to prayerfully identify, develop, and use these gifts, there are lives that may go untouched.  God wants to use us – work through us- to bring others to Him.

Prayer:  Lord, take all that I have and all that I am.  Use me to do Your Will – and Yours alone.  Help me to identify, develop and use the gifts and talents for which You have graciously blessed me.  Use me to bring others to You!

About danardoyle

I am a Catholic, working wife and mother. I have three children ages 7, 14 and 21. I am extremely busy, as you can imagine. I aim each and every day to put God first in my life, to teach my children the Faith, to be a supportive spouse, keep the house in order, and do my job outside of the home well, too. That's an impossible task - without Divine intervention! Here, I hope to share my triumphs and struggles with other working moms in the same boat. I will share the tools I have discovered to making it all work - most days!
