Daily Prayer - Be Leaven to the World

Lord, you said to your friends, "Be the leaven to the world." Bread, a staple of life, and always present at celebrations, would be dull and lifeless without the tiny bit of yeast. Without it, the dough remains inert, hard. You also told us to multiply our talents. You thus expect that we use the talents you gave us as the leaven to this world. Teach me, Lord Jesus, that alone I am insignificant, but mixed with the talents of my brothers and sisters, I can lift this world out of mediocrity. May I be a bit of leaven in the Bread of Life, and a sign of your celebration in this life and life eternal.
