A Collect to Use our Gifts Well

Generous master, who has given to us both material and spiritual gifts to enjoy and use here on earth, teach us to be apply what you have given us responsibly in the world, that we might go out and do good with your gifts and so bring joy to you and to those we encounter according to your will, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end. Amen. “The one who had received the five talents went off at once and traded with them, and made five more talents. In the same way, the one who had the two talents made two more talents.” – Matthew 25:16-17
