G-MM™: Meditation Moment - 09.01.12
‘You entrusted me with five talents: here are five more that I have made.’
Let us imagine talents are measures of faith, potential for grace.
Investing our talents, then, will entail living with faith and justice and ensuring Jesus’ message travels out to others through our example and acts of compassion.
By sharing our talents we encourage the growth of grace which will then ripple out to the furthest reaches of humanity.
If we simply nourish our own faith, we follow a selfish path and the grace is likely to dry up.
If we bury our talents, no one benefits at all and the potential grace is lost.
In this Year of Grace, let us take the time to use our talents wisely, planting seeds of goodness so that grace will spread its branches far and wide, creating forests of joy and peace.
