Today's Gospel from Matthew 25 has the praable Jesus told of the man going on a journey and entrusting his servants with his possessions -"to each according to his ability". One received five talents and made another five. One received two and made another two. One received one and through fear buried it. He is called a "wicked, lazy servant." I think his greatest fault was not trusting his Master. Jesus wants us to use the gifts given to us. "From his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace" as John tells us in the Prologue to his Gospel.
Am I using the gifts God has given me? Will Jesus say to me, "Well done, good and faithful servant, come share your Master's joy"?
