St. Augustine, bishop and doctor of the Church
How many talents has God given you? Are you using them all to further his kingdom? Today's gospel shows us it's not optional to minister. To just be a good person and not do anything bad with the personal gifts God has given you isn't enough. You have to share them and make them grow!
One more thing: Do your children see you participate in parish or community ministries? Getting involved takes effort, but remember, it needs to be based on your talent. If you are shy, don't be the greater at mass. If you are clumsy with numbers, don't serve on the finance council. Spend some time discovering your talents - even ask your kids. When you find a way to minister that lets your talents shine, you will truly be able to boast in the Lord!
Prayer: Dear Lord, thank you for the talents you have given me. Help me to use them for your glory, not my own. In your name I pray, Amen. St. Augustine, pray for me.
