The king in the parable of the Lord in yesterdays Gospel is a vicious man who by his own admission takes what is not his possession and harvests what he did not plant. Against the will of the people he takes the kingship and slays his enemies in front of everyone. No wonder the poor servant with his one gold coin is terrified! We worship a different sort of king: Jesus the Christ. He is a king of justice love and peace. We need not ever fear him. We need not fear the worlds persecution nor the finality of death for Christ has won the victory for us! We can accept with gratitude the treasure of Christs kingdom-the word the sacraments and love of God-and invest them by loving others and sharing the seeds of faith. The harvest will be bountiful! Be not afraid to invest God's love that you have been given by loving others and sharing Jesus with them!
