Parable of the Talents

Cycle AOrdinary TimeWeek 33

by Bishop Robert BarronNovember 19, 2017


Your being increases in the measure that you give it away. That's the law of the gift, and it can be found from end to end of the Bible. One application of this law has to do with faith itself. Your faith will grow only in the measure that you give it away, sharing it with others.
