My Reflection for Wednesday November 20, Thirty-third Week in Ordinary Time; Luke 19:11-28

My Reflection:
The punishment for being unproductive servant of the Lord is quite scary as what we read in the gospel. But on the other hand the reward for being productive servant is very generous.

No one of us has been to the afterlife as such we don’t know what is the scheme of things there. But somehow the gospel for today gives us a glimpse of what’s in store for us there. If we become unproductive or if we become productive servants of the Lord Jesus.
  
Of course we must always strive to become productive servants of the Lord for this is our baptismal mission. We were not baptized to become idle Catholics. We were baptized so that we could share our faith and help the mission of Jesus.

But not every baptized Christian is able to become productive servants of Jesus. Many of us are not able to live our baptismal mission. What will happen to those who are not productive? How will they reply Jesus if they are asked if they became fruitful?

Would we be severely punished by Jesus if He discovers that we did not become productive stewards of our faith?  We don’t know what will happen by then. However, one thing is very sure there shall be an accounting of the things that we’ve done in this world. Good or bad there shall be an accounting. …
