How, where and for whom are you using your gifts? - Daily Bible Reflections August 7, 2016


HOLY DISTURBANCE

Much will be required of the person entrusted with much, and still more will be demanded of the person entrusted with more. – Luke 12:48
       You must have heard it a thousand times, but I’m saying it again here. “With great power comes great responsibility.” And yes, you must have heard it from Spiderman (or Uncle Ben or Stan Lee). But hey, it’s solidly biblical after all!
       Sometimes you may regret knowing too much, having too much, or having become somebody. Because along with the blessings is your conscience prodding you to do more because of the “more” that you have. I call that “holy disturbance.”  Because when you’re disturbed, God will give you peace. But when you’re too peaceful (and comfortable), God will disturb you. Whether you’re a fisherman, a doctor, an employer or a church volunteer, there will always be the call to do something  with what you have — for others.
       It doesn’t matter if you were entrusted with millions, thousands, hundreds or even with just 10 or one. The ultimate question is, what did you do with it? In the end, your true peace and joy will come only from fulfilling your life’s purpose using everything you’ve got. And you just can’t retire from who you truly are!

Reflection: How, where and for whom are you using your gifts?
Lord, may I use the blessings You give to fulfill Your great purpose and plan for me.
St. Cajetan, priest, pray for us.
