16 NOVEMBER

Post  @doi on Thu Nov 13 2008, 00:16

33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time (A)
Mt 25:14-30

In the parable, God is portrayed before us as a businessman with a gambler's instincts. He gives us different "amounts" and expects us to use them wisely. In the natural level, as early as when we were in our mother's womb, God has already implanted inclinations or talents in us which we need to develop later. In the spiritual level, the seed of divine life, of faith, was planted in us at our baptism which we must daily nourish.
By entrusting us with these "amounts," gifts really, God takes a big risk. He just hopes that we catch his enterprising attitude. He is telling us in effect, "No risk, no gain." But how we make use of these gifts is ours to make, not his. The parable focuses on our commitment as Christians in the building up of the Kingdom of God on earth with the use of God's gifts. In God's plan, this is also the best way to prepare ourselves for our final meeting with Jesus when he as a Judge will ask us for an accounting of his gifts.
That God will be absent for a long time is part of his plan. In asking us during his absence to do our share in bringing about the growth of his Kingdom by using the gifts he entrusted to us, he shows that he trusts and respect us, that he treats us as responsible persons.
