The responsibilities we encounter in life are many, and some of them demanding and difficult. The images in the gospel remind us to be responsible in our vocations and in the roles, we have accepted in life (such as our job). Sometimes we may fulfill our responsibilities, our “duty”, grudgingly or halfway. We may feel some things as ‘beneath’ us. But, the example in the gospel shows us that our service should be with gratitude and joy. We are using well the time, talents and treasure that God has given us. We are faithful stewards! May this gospel encourage us in our service to God and others.
