Commentary on the Gospel of
Everyone is given a task to accomplish and a responsibility to be carried out. Happy are you if you are aware of the demands of the responsibility entrusted to you. The Gospel invites us to reflect how well we fulfil the works that are entrusted to us and what attitudes prevail towards our duties. The servant in the Gospel took his leisure in the absence of his master and acted as a hypocrite. A person can do things just to impress others and out of compulsions. Jesus, on the other hand, appreciates the works that are done from the heart and seeking only the benefit of the other.
God will hold us responsible for the responsibilities, gifts and talents he has entrusted to us. At the same time Jesus warns of dangers of misusing the power and authority assigned to the people, which are meant only for serving the others.
