This past Sunday, we commemorated all of the Saints. Many of these men and women were individuals, who through finding Christ, were baptized and lived a very focused life. This life was challenging, difficult, came with burdens, and tested them with temptations. As they prayed, labored, taught and lived their lives each day – their existence focused on God and works.
These works took many forms but all were comparable to the terms we use today – Time, Talents and Treasures. Many of the Saints have written that God will judge us based on our works – what we do with all that He has provided for us.
As you arise each morning and before you go to sleep at night, think about all of the ways in which you work, or can work, to give of your Time, Talents and Treasures. Pray and ask God for guidance as to how you can focus your efforts to ensure you are doing all that you can.
Your personal salvation depends on it!
