Sowing seeds: Everybody bears a parcel of Providence

" ...people’s lives as stewards take countless forms according to their unique vocations and circumstances."
—Stewardship: A Disciple’s Response
U. S. Catholic bishops’ stewardship pastoral letter

Sometimes we become complacent about the mystery and majesty of life. It’s easy to take life for granted; yet search as they might, astronomers have found no evidence of life outside planet Earth. By our birth and by our baptism, every one of us brings forth a parcel of Divine Providence. There is nobody else to whom God has given your soul, your body, your mind, your talents, your vocation. Too often, we wait for ideal circumstances. We’ll volunteer, we tell ourselves, when we retire. We’ll contribute to charitable organizations, we reason, when we have more money. We’ll pray, we rationalize, when our schedules ease up a bit. The good steward practices stewardship now, putting discipleship first, regardless of circumstances.

What are your abilities? How can you apply your abilities toward meeting the needs of our time? What would further enhance your vocation: a religious education class? a retreat or pilgrimage? involvement with a social justice ministry?
