Given Much

"Much will be required of the person entrusted with much" (Luke 12:48). Whew! At least the Lord hasn't entrusted me with much! Thank goodness that the work of the reign of God on earth has been entrusted to somebody else. This must be the "good news" of today's Gospel, right? Wrong! In the mentality that has come to be known as "keeping up with the Joneses" we can gear ourselves toward a comparison with those who have more or who have been given more, even by God. Unfortunately, nowhere does Jesus say: "Not much will be expected of those who have been given only a little bit." Each of us, in our own way, has been given something, some gift or treasure that we can put toward the work of the reign of God. This is the vocation of Christian discipleship. Perhaps others seem to have been given more; evaluating this is not the disciple's concern. The concern of each of us in the vocation for which we have been chosen is to take what we have been given, and consecrate it for the continued in-breaking of God's kingdom of justice, joy, peace, and beauty. Then will we come to realize that we have indeed been given much.
