NO GIFT TOO SMALL.

HOMILY OF THE 33RD SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME YEAR A

Proverbs 31:10-13.19-20.30-31, Thess 5:1-6, Matthew 25:14-30

No gift is too small in our hands.

It is our ideas on how to utilize them that can be small or great.

Those who are dull in thinking only look for what to spend.

The wise will always want to invest.

Those who invest with the right attitude, and are positive, will always get an increase.

When we invest in our work, we call it business.

When we invest in other people, it is called generosity.

When we invest in God’s work, we are making an offering.

Every investment, when done with love and with proper planning, will always yield harvest of joy.

Our works on earth are seeds meant to be sown for an eternal harvest. When we accept all we have and are as gifts from God, we will surely place our life into God’s service.

Moreover, when we put God first in all our activities, we will do all for his glory. We will realize that our gifts, skills, talents, wealth are fruits of his generosity. Hence, we shall extend his love to others just the way he has done to us. We would simply be like the good wife in our today’s first reading.

She puts her hands to the distaff, and her hands hold the spindle. She opens her hands to the poor, and reaches out her hands to the needy…..A woman who fears the Lord to be praised. Giver her of the fruits of her hands, and let her works praise her in the gates.”

It is how we go about the works of our hands that will give us open doors, either here on earth, or in heaven when the time of our departure comes.

Therefore, let us be resourceful for God, for we do not know when the Lord will come.”For you yourselves know well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night.”

What we do with our talents matters on the day of our visitation.

Our today’s gospel’s narrates the parable of the talents. The servant who traded with their talents, and made profits, were rewarded, while the one who did not use his own, thinking that it was too small, was thrown into outer darkness.

Poverty of ideas is what makes our resources limited. Those who think small will never grow beyond their thought. Everyone has been given the command and capacity from creation, to increase and multiply.

May we discover the creative energy in us, that we may be useful to ourselves and others in Jesus name.

Interesting approach towards this. Wondering what you think of its implication on society as a whole though? Sometimes people get a little upset with global expansion. I will be back soon and follow up with a response. http://www.piano.m106.com
