Father, help me to be faithful to use the gifts you have given me for Your glory.
There is quite a contrast between Matthew 25 and 26. Chapter 25 speaks largely about how we, as Christians, should live our lives: using our talents, always being ready for Christ’s return, feeding the poor, giving water to the thirsty.
Suddenly we are thrust into the final days before the Crucifixion: the disciples sleeping while Jesus prays, Judas’ betrayal of his master, Peter’s denial.
The truth is, no matter how good we try to be, and no matter how much we try to do, we are going to disappoint. Jesus with our earthly efforts. This is not to say we should discount them, we are called to live our lives with Jesus as our example. But deeds cannot replace our acknowledgement that Jesus died for our sins and he will only accept us when we accept him
