Judgement or Blessings?
November 16, 2014
ORDINARY TIME 33
In today’s parable, three servants are given different talents. Two increased what
they had. One did nothing and was condemned. This parable acknowledges that
we are not born equally talented, for although we are created equal in human
rights, we have different intellectual abili es, physical strengths and skills. We
are born with different social opportuni es, advantages and gene c
inheritances. We are entrusted with different talents, with the expecta on that
we will produce abundantly, no ma er the “quan ty” or the “quality.”
We o en compare ourselves to very talented people, minimizing and forge ng
about the very real and worthwhile gi s we have also received. In doing this, we
show lack of self-acceptance - forge ng how blessed we are by the unique
talents God has given us. Instead of using our talents, we think about the ones
we don’t have that we see in others, secretly wishing to be like they are. Our
talents might not be spectacular, but they are real, important and unique gi s
that make us who we are.
The parable asks, are we using our talents and resources in the service of God,
His Church and others? The man in the Gospel who was given the least was not a
bad man. He did not steal or squander the money. His only crime was that he
buried the money in the ground and did nothing with it. Two things that keep us
from using our talents are “fear” and “inac vity.” We talk, we plan, we make
resolu ons… but our plans never get trac on. We can live in a spiritual
tomorrow that never quite becomes today.
The lesson is clear. All three individuals received talents. For two of them, those
talents became “blessings.” For one, it became a “judgment.” Two were
rewarded for their faithfulness, trust, courage and ac vity. The third was judged
for his unfaithfulness, fear, lack of trust and inac vity. Who is this third servant?
Could it be you or me? Whatever talents we have been given by the Lord are
meant to be our contribu on to the life of the Church and our personal, unique
way to powerful discipleship. Big or small, those talents can turn the de in
someone’s life - they can be a vehicle of Christ’s grace to others.
Reflect on your gi s. Maybe you have a gi for friendship, for organiza on, for
leadership, for spiritual strength, for empathy, for loyalty, for bridge-building, for
helping, for teaching, for giving advice, for consola on, for deep prayer… It may
be the gi of money or possessions that could bring blessings to others.
Whatever the talents and resources we have been given, are we using them in
the service of the Lord?
The talents we have are gi s. When we use them to
compare ourselves, to others they become a judgment.
When we use them in the service of the Lord, they
become blessings.
