I came here with nothing, but all you have given me.
  • Revelation 4:1-11
  • Psalm 150:1-6
  • Luke 19:11-28

God gives us resources, talents, gifts for stewardship – the responsibility we are given at baptism. We have to remember that everything that is given by God is for the glory of God and the betterment of his creation including our environment. “The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it.” (Psalm 24:1) St. Gertrude and St. Margaret teach us that after they encountered God at a deeper level, they used their talents such as knowledge, insight, kindness and holiness for the glory of God. We are given a glimpse of heaven through John’s vision.

The Spirit of God – wisdom, understanding, counsel, might, knowledge and fear of God, are gifts from God. Eternal communion with God the Father in the presence of angels, saints and everyone else continuously praising God is our eternal reward! It should only be natural to us to glorify God in everything. The Lord Jesus is not calling us to just live and die but to carry out the mission that he has entrusted to us.

Prayer: Abba Father, as I live in surrender and take Jesus to the world may I never seek a crown, for my reward is giving glory to you. Amen.
