What do we do?

After Matthew 25:14-30

What do we do
with what is
entrusted to us,
the gift or gifts
given into
our hands,
a skill, a talent,
a mind, an ability,
money, a voice,
love, grace, all
that is poured
down upon us?

What do we do
with our hands
and feet, our desire
to serve, our ability
to carry and lift?
What do we do
with what we know,
with what we learn,
with what we take
to heart and understand,
with what we believe,
with what we affirm?

We find the places
to put it to work,
to invest, to grow,
to become ten, five,
two times more, or
even add a bit 
of interest.
We become farmers
who plant the seeds.
