NO KNOWLEDGE IS A WASTE

HOMILY, THURSDAY, 17TH WEK IN ORDINARY TIME YEAR A

 Jer 18:1-6, Matthew 13:47-53

At times, we do not give attention to any kind of knowledge that does not keep food on our table. We refuse any kind of information or skill that has no direct link with the kind of work we do at the moment. We forget that God is the giver of all knowledge. In his presence no knowledge is a waste. He sheds his light on what we already know and makes us people of advantage.

Therefore every scribe who has been trained for the kingdom of heaven is like a householder who brings out of his treasure what is new and what is old.”

Those who have God have advantage over those who are yet to embrace the life of grace. They are people who have privileged information which gives additional credence to whatever they do. Hence, there is no point quitting our job simply because we have encountered Jesus. He wants us to bloom with his light wherever we find ourselves.

More so, everything is not about what we get but what we give. Every talent or gift that we have is expected to be put at the Lord’s disposal for the enhancement of his kingdom. Like clay in the hands of a potter, God wants to use us and everything about us for this kingdom.

PRAYER

Bend my heart to your will O Lord. Make me a useful instrument in your hands. Give me more of your light that I may shine forth with the abundance of your grace. Thy kingdom come. Amen.

I’m extremely impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your weblog.
Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself?
Either way keep up the excellent quality writing, it’s rare to see a great blog like this one nowadays.

Hi, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.
When I look at your blog in Opera, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!

Other then that, amazing blog!
