Gospel Reading: Matthew 25:14-30

“For to everyone who has, more will be given, and he will grow rich; but from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away.”

This excerpt may seem like the false “prosperity gospel” that some errantly ascribe to, but what Jesus is actually emphasizing is a richness in the spiritual life, which is not coordinated with richness in the material sense. In other words, the closer we are to the Lord, the easier it is to remain his disciple. We must be sure to draw our students to this reality.

How can we draw our students to use what God has given them to further his Good News?
