Talents, Generosity and Love

  • The phrase, ‘the kingdom of heaven’ often stands for God, and the central revelation here is just how generous God is. Think of the generosity of God the Father and ask that your heart may be opened to the fact that God is pure love.
  • Think of this love as a great waterfall, with everyone invited to come close to it and be drenched by its spray. In prayer and life you are meeting this lavish God who does not know when or how or why to stop loving you. This love is inexhaustible, but it is for sharing! I am meant to be generous with the love given to me, and not hoard it like a miser.
