When you have done all you have been commanded, say, 'We are unprofitable servants; we have done what we were obliged to do.'
Today's Gospel is a reminder for us to remain humble despite all our "accomplishments." Because the truth is, those accomplishments are merely responsibilities we ought to fulfill.
I am Aiza.
Daughter. Friend. Sister. Partner. Missionary.
SFC. PFO Coordinator. Writer. Editor. Process Analyst. Department Head.
I write. I blog. I do functional requirements. I organize retreats. I give talks. And the list goes on.
But really, these things don't make me a great person. I am nobody until God trusted me enough with these responsibilities. I do things not on my own capacity but only through the strength which comes from my Creator. I live only by His daily sufficient grace.
See, titles come and go. Accomplishments? They will soon be forgotten, and probably would become meaningless. All that matters in the end is not how much but how well you did. So better give your all and give your best, because the Big Boss deserves nothing less.
At the end of the day, I am nothing - untitled, useless, unprofitable. I just did what I am obliged to do. Because I am a mere servant of God who does not my will but His.
I hope to be able to do well enough to hear my Master say, "well done, good and faithful servant." ♥
