Gospel Reflection for November 13th, 33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time

Jesus said, “To those who have, more will be given, and they will have an abundance; but from those who have nothing; even what they have will be taken away.”
Matthew 25.29

The moral of this Sunday’s parable seems counter-intuitive to the Gospel messages to which we are most accustomed. What happened to “the last shall be first and the first shall be last?” What about, “Blessed are the meek?” Is Jesus moral compass acting like a yo-yo?

This parable urges us to see in the amount of money all that God entrusts to us in giving us life, unique gifts, and family and friends whose lives we share. Jesus calls us to multiply the gifts entrusted to us.

What is one of the most valuable ways you have invested your life energies?
