We should all be aware of the spiritual gifts we have been given and develop them, just as the woman in Proverbs, who had honed her skills. Some of us have gone through darkness in one way or another; and there may be aspects of our lives that need healing, so that we can utilize our gifts to the fullest. Let us make full use of the teachings and retreats the community offers, specially the Prayer Healing Seminar, and avail ourselves of the trained counselors in community to help see ourselves the way God sees us. The word of God reminds us that we are all called to grow in the grace of God, and to use our talents for our own good and that of others. God has equipped us to grow in holiness and live a new life in Christ, so that we can become credible witnesses and bring forth new disciples in His name. Let us be the good and faithful servant, and share in our Master’s joy. As we take pause, let us ask ourselves: What prevents us from being true Christian disciples? Scared of the responsibility?
Let us resolve then to be more productive spirits.
