The worthy wife and 2 servants show the importance of using our God- given gifts
by Sister Agnes Fischer
The beautiful woman in this Sunday's first reading from Proverbs 31 certainly did not bury her talents in the ground, but rather exercised and enhanced them much like the first two men in the Gospel (Mt. 25:14-30).
These are people who are not afraid:
- To get involved when a friend or neighbor has a problem or is in trouble.
- To be generous and willing to give whatever is necessary: time, understanding, companionship, help, pardon …
- To be aware of the tears of another and do what they can to alleviate them.
Maybe it’s time to dig up that buried talent and put it to work.
