“And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth” (Matthew 25:30).Text — Matthew 25:24-30
God is happy when we are fruitful with our talents. Erma Bombeck said, “When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, ‘I used everything you gave me.’” When God gives you a talent, He expects it to be used profitably for the purpose it was given. He also rewards those who’ve been faithful and fruitful with theirs. Don’t be tempted to hide your talent; you’ll lose it if you don’t use it. There are severe consequences for being unfruitful, as shown in our Bible text today. Therefore, be all that God intends you to be.
To discover your God-given talents, pray and truthfully consider what they are. Next, think about what you enjoy doing, ask others around you, seek out needs, and fit in. As we await our Lord’s return, our mission is to work with our talents to serve others and expand God’s kingdom. Remember, that we shall be held accountable for them one day. Will the Lord commend or condemn you?
Be all that God intends you to be
Use your talents well –no misuse.
Prayer for today
