Gospel Reading for the Day:

Matthew 24:45-51 (NIV)

45 “Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom the master has put in charge of the servants in his household to give them their food at the proper time?  45 It will be good for that servant whose master finds him doing so when he returns.  47 Truly I tell you, he will put him in charge of all his possessions.  48 But suppose that servant is wicked and says to himself, “My master is staying away a long time”, 49 and he then begins to beat his fellow servants and to eat and drink with drunkards. 50 The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of.  51 He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”

Reflection

Have you ever had the dream where you realize the semester is almost over, you have a test in math and you haven’t even attended the class yet? Panic sets in; you wonder how can you possibly learn the material in time. What were you thinking? Why weren’t you prepared? How could you forget something so important? Not only that, you’re probably going to fail the class now. You let yourself down; you let your parents down. Then, the relief you feel when you wake up and realize, “Wait, I’ve already graduated. I don’t even have a test!”

Perhaps you can relate that dream to some sort of stress you are going through in your life. Perhaps there is a test, or perhaps some other sort of deadline. Perhaps you’re just not as prepared as you want to be for the world’s challenges. All of us have been given gifts, talents, and responsibilities in this world. They are wonderful blessings that make us feel important and useful, but are we making the most them? Are we reaching our fullest potential in our own eyes and God’s eyes? Or are we being lazy with our gifts, not trying hard enough, thinking, “There’s always tomorrow?”

We only have a limited time on this earth; are we truly, faithfully fulfilling God’s plan for our lives, our destiny? Are we letting fear get in our way? God wants us to be incredible in our thoughts, words, and deeds. We are unique in the way God made us and has chosen us to have purpose and meaning in this finite world. We should be prayerful and mindful of our mission in life. Are you prepared to fulfill the role he has set down for you? Or are you going to fail that class?
