Focus on the Sunday Gospel for the 27th Sunday in Ordinary Time.
Use this unit study to help teach children the Parable of the Unprofitable Servant and that we must work in the way that is expected. This lesson is based on the Gospel of St. Luke 17:5-10.
Like many of us, the Apostles desire to have greater faith and direction in their forthcoming ministerial work. Jesus points out that even the smallest amount of faith can be powerful and can move one toward their vocation. Christ uses the Parable of the Unprofitable Servant to illustrate that the master must lead his servant. In turn, the servant must trust the master and do what he ought to do. A worker’s labor profits humanity, not God Himself, because God is perfect. Children can learn to work in the best way they can, and in the way that is expected.
