Friday of Week 22 Year 2

Are you a trustworthy person? Can you keep secrets? Are you dependable? Do people have confidence in you? These are some of the many questions you may have heard from time to time, especially when an issue or matter of grave importance needs to be revealed. Sometimes, we may be reminded to keep certain things to ourselves, or that the matter should be "kept within the walls," or we may be required to "keep it under wraps."

As Christians, St Paul reminds us in the reading: "People must think of us as Christ’s servants, stewards entrusted with the mysteries of God. What is expected of stewards is that each one should be found worthy of his trust." There are times when the trust placed upon us could be challenged by others. Would we be able to maintain trust, even to the point of persecution and the possibility of death? Also, the trust placed upon us means we should be humble and careful not to judge. St. Paul in the reading also reminds us: "There must be no passing of premature judgement. Leave that until the Lord comes; he will light up all that is hidden in the dark and reveal the secret intentions of men’s hearts." As stewards, our duty is to love and serve faithfully and with confidence, just as God loves all of us. Let us not divert from the trust placed upon us, and continue to walk faithfully and humbly in God's loving presence.
