Matthew 25:14-30

33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time

Use what you have been given

God has given you gifts or talents to use at the service of his Kingdom. That is how the Kingdom of God is built up, through you. You have a role to play, no matter your age, status, or circumstance.

So, the first step would be to discover what God has given to you. How could you do that? Perhaps ask someone you trust to give their opinion of where your talents are most obvious. You may know yourself well enough to answer that question for yourself. Either way, you are meant to use that at the service of others.

For instance, in the first letter of Peter, he writes, ‘If you are a speaker, speak in words which seem to come from God; if you are a helper, help as though every action was done at God’s orders; so that in everything God may receive the glory through Jesus Christ’.

Asking for a friend

Take the first step and ask yourself where you can serve God best with the talents he has given you. Confirm this by asking a friend/parent/sibling if they agree and then be intentional about using that talent to serve the people God has placed in your life.
