Prayer For The Dead

Life is but a stopping place,
a pause in what’s to be,
a resting place along the road,
to sweet eternity.

We all have different journeys,
different paths along the way,
we all were meant to learn some things,
but never meant to stay…

Our destination is a place,
far greater than we know.
For some the journey is quicker,
for some the journey is slow.

And when the journey finally ends,
We hope to claim a great reward,
and find an everlasting peace,
together with the lord.

It is by living that we discover our talents, and it is by using them that they grow. Every talent has to be developed. Sometimes a lot of hard work, discipline, and patience are required if a talent is to bear its full fruit. We see this in the example of the first two servants in Jesus’s story. We see the opposite of it in the case of the third servant. It wasn’t the harshness of his master that prevented him from using his talent – that was merely an excuse. Nor was it lack of opportunity. He himself was to blame, through a combination of laziness, cowardicc, and selfishness.
Life is God’s gift to us. What we do with life is our gift to God.
