Ep12 S2 Responsibility and Stewardship

Saint Paul exhorts us: "Receive not the grace of God in vain!" All that we do "in vain" is nothing more than vanity. In the Gospel, our Lord instructs us with a parable in which a master, just before he embarks upon a long journey, entrusts his servants with varying amounts of talents, with the expectation that they work with these talents and increase the wealth for when the master returns. Those servants who did as they should are extremely successful! But one servant receives a talent and does no work with it. He received his talent "in vain." Hear the challenge of this lesson that we might be good stewards of all the good things God gives to us!
