Twenty-seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time (YEAR 2013)

Meditation on Today's Scripture:
Jesus’ parable of the dutiful laborers seems to suggest that we ought to always give our best, in spite of of what we can expect in return. But, aren't we like the laborer in Jesus' parable who expected fair compensation for his day's work? How unjust for the master to compel him to give more than what was expected! Don't we love to assert our rights: "I will give only what is required and no more!" But who can satisfy the claims of love? Jesus used this parable of the dutiful servant to explain that we can never put God in our debt or make the claim that God owes us something. We must regard ourselves as God's servants, just as Jesus came "not to be served, but to serve". Service of God and of neighbor is both a voluntary or free act which springs from a generous and merciful heart and a sacred duty which we owe to an all-merciful and gracious God. One can volunteer for public service or be compelled to do service for one's country. Likewise, God expects us to give him the worship and praise which is his due. And he gladly accepts the free-will offering of our lives to him and his service. What makes our offering pleasing to God is the love we express in the gift of self-giving. True love is sacrificial, generous, and selfless.

Eternal God, who is and was and will be forever, we trust that you are and will always be our God, our Redeemer, our Savior, our Shepherd, and our Father. We commit all our tomorrows to you. In the name of Infant Jesus our Lord we pray. Amen.
