Invested in God's Work

The readings today and through much of November speak of the end times. Zephaniah proclaims that the coming day of the Lord will be filled with wrath and distress. Paul says it will come like a thief in the night. Jesus tells the parable of the talents, calling us to use our gifts, while we still have time, for the greater and common good. 2020 sometimes feels like the end times. Perhaps it is. No matter what time it is--and especially when times are hard--Christians are called to invest ourselves in what God is doing, increasing and sharing blessings and grace.
