Consider the following: 1. The Master distributes what the servants have to work with. All is on loan. So with us, God provides (a) our talents and aptitudes, and (b) the tools of civilization to facilitate our working with his gifts.

What is the ratio God expects us, by choice, to maintain between the talents that he has invested in us and the use we make of them in working? ) Ratio Here is a guide to sculptors—of selves! The Lord says: “Again, it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants and entrusted his property to them. To one he gave five talents of money, to another two talents, and to another one talent, each according to his ability. Then he went on his journey. The man who had received the five talents went at once and put his money to work and gained five more.

God sees migrant families struggling hopelessly from dawn to dusk; peasants who grub like slaves without hope; service employees called any time for emergencies, surrendering their family holidays or busy through the dark of night. “Lose your life …,” is Jesus asking us?
