Matthew 25 V 29
For to everyone who has, more will be given, and he will have abundance but from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away.
The book of Matthew 25 from verse 14 to 30 tells us about the parable of the talent as told by Jesus to His disciples.
From that parable we learnt that no child of God is created without a talent. We are all given talents according to our several abilities.
What you do with the talent you are given determines whether more will be added to you or whether the one you have would be taken away. You have been given the talent to Sing, evangelize, pray, preach the word of God, make peace, keep clean the house of God, etc.
How well are you using your talent to glorify God. The Bible says the harvest is plenty but the labourers are few. There is so much to do to advance the kingdom of God, but how many of us are willing to serve God with all our hearts, might and strength? Will God have you and still look for someone to send? Is that not a shame? With all the voice you have, and the choir seat is near empty on a service day? What a shame! With all the knowledge and the insight you have and you can’t preach Jesus? What a shame! With all the strength and resources that God has given you, yet you absent yourself when church projects are ongoing, Haba! Of what use is your gift if its not used to enlarge the kingdom of God? Is it not better taken from you and given to him that knows its worth? What trophy would you present to Jesus when He comes?
All gifts are given by God to His children for Kingdom advancement, hence whatever you are doing for God, you must concentrate on doing it well to the glory of our Father in Heaven.
We must shun every form of distraction that is capable of hindering our assignment here on earth, for our rewards awaits us.
Brethren, do you have treasures in heaven? The day is far spent, the night comes quickly, prepare yourself.
God bless you.
