Unprofitable servants

“So should it be with you. When you have done all you have been commanded, say, ‘We are unprofitable servants; we have done what we were obliged to do.’” (LK 17: 10)

Our Lord’s “commands” come from His heart, are dictated by love,and of course are “unprofitable” because they orient us to people, not to gain. When we are “not-for-profit,” we are person-oriented, and it helps us remember one act of love brings more profit for everybody than any other activity.

“Whoever loves me will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him.” (Gospel Acclamation)
