09-01-18 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

September 1, 2018
In a parable that Jesus told His disciples, the master of the productive servants exclaimed, “Since you were faithful in small matters, I will give you great responsibilities.  Come, share your master’s joy.”   Mt_25:14-30

You see, beloved, the master didn’t really NEED productivity.  But He didn’t want to see his gifts squandered either.  He did, however, want to see his servants grow from the experience!  The servant who had extraordinary fear of his master; fear of failing, fear of disappointing, fear of punishment, and chose instead to hide his master’s gift (regardless of its size), was not only unproductive, but never grew from the potential experience of TRYING.

God wants to see us grow!  Sometimes we grow in our successes and sometimes we might even grow more from our failures.  Never give up trying, beloved.  And God will even reward us if we fail.  But not if we don’t try!

Happy September, beloved!
God’s blessings of courage for trying,
success in all of our attempts and
perseverance in our efforts!
