I was reminded this morning of the story of the Master who was going away on trip and before he leaves he gives each of his servants talents (bags of Gold). To one he gave 5 talents, to another three and to another one. As you know the servants with the 5 and 3 talents double what they had, but the servant with one talent hid it in the ground and on the masters return gave it back to him in its original condition. The Master upset by the lack of work by the servant takes the one talent and gives it to the servant with 10.
Jesus used parables to reveal a life truth. Here are some thoughts from this story:
God gives to each of us a measure of gifts. Everyone has a purpose. If we neglect to use what has been given, we in essence are refusing the kingdom plan that God has for our lives. We limit the impact and influence our lives can have on other people. We limit the potential fruitfulness our lives can have.
Discover what is in you. What you have been given and determine in your heart to use it today for his Glory. You can do this!
Cheering you on, Nu and Taua Telea
