Today’s lectionary shared another of the parables that can remind us that, viewed through the human lens, God can appear to do crazy things; especially when dealing with humans. We heard the parable of the Talents and the rich person (landowner) that gives talents to his servants according to their ability. The landowner entrusted his slaves with 15 years’ wages (or more) to manage in his absence; with little direction. Yet through it all, God regards our action rather than what we produce – those who work for God are rewarded. How are you challenged to move forward in faith following God?
I invite you comments,
