Being Fruitful

The Gospel of this weekend reminds me of my primary school class mate. After finishing primary school both of us wanted to further our education, I was going to the minor seminary and he was planning to go to a technical school in the same town. I didn’t know, but he ended up living in the village and didn’t further his education as planned. I never asked why he didn’t pursuing his further studies.

Last year when I was visiting my parents in the village, I witnessed what a fine builder (building houses) he had become. He was also good at making furniture, all with no formal training. He told me that all these skills he received from his father. However, his father was not trained as a builder nor a furniture maker. One day when this friend of mine was only sixteen, his father asked him to make a set of dining chairs and table. While working, the father watched him. After making a couple of chairs, the father said: “from now on you will continue this business”. The same thing happened with training him to building a house when he was eighteen.

My friend became a fine builder and furniture maker because he recognized his special gift. He actively watched his father work and learned how to do it by himself. He has developed this ability that makes his life fruitful.

This weekend’s gospel is about recognizing God’s gift and how we cultivate them to be fruitful. 1) God gives each person different gifts for his or her intended uses. Everything is a gift, and everything is meant to be given back in service of love for the Lord. We are only asked to make full use of what we have been uniquely given and to use our talents for the benefit of the community as a whole. (2) The better our work the greater our responsibility. God gives more responsibilities to those who make the best use of their God-given talents. (3) The lazy and the unproductive will be punished. It means that when we do not develop our gifts, they will disappear. In that way we could say that we punish ourselves by our way of living. (4) Those who have, they will be given more. Which means that those who are willing to develop their gifts, will receive much more opportunities and new learning will come up.
