“The Parable of the Loaned Money” is one of my favourite parables because of the Scripture above
This is what I want to hear God say to me, when I get to Heaven! Yet, sadly, this parable shows that not everyone will do so, because of the account of the servant with one talent (money)
Friends, no one will ever receive more or less than they can handle. Therefore, our God-given Spiritual gifts, natural abilities, time, finance etc. – whatever it might be – at the end of it all, we cannot say that we were overwhelmed with what God asked of us, because of this
God blesses us to bless others…it’s as simple as that!
So, whatever God has given us to use within this world, are we using them all wisely? Have we invested the talents that He has given us until He returns?
Because, the Father has given us all that we need to accomplish everything that He wrote in His book before the beginning of time. This includes our abilities that He knitted within our very being, when we were within our Mother’s womb
My prayer today is that we will seek God daily. In other words, we will try to build our relationship with the Father, and then when we hear guidance from the Holy Spirit, we are responsible for using those things well.
I really felt to encourage us this morning, that what God has blessed us with, is for His Kingdom. So friends, let’s remember that, as this parable shows, it’s not how much we have been given in this life, but how well we use what we have!
