Story: A master entrusted his wealth to his servants and went on a journey. When he returned he praised the servants who were given five and two talents; they had both doubled their value. To the servant who received one talent and buried it for safe keeping, he said, “Throw that worthless slave into the outer darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth”. (Matthew 25:30)
Thought: We have each received a different number of talents, and one day we will be asked, “What have you done with your talents”!
Reflection: Lord Jesus, you have shown us the road to eternal happiness, open our hearts and thoughts to your truth. Help us to multiply, many-fold, the talents you granted us. Amen.
