The master was full of praise. ‘Well done, my good and faithful servant. You have been faithful in handling this small amount, so now I will give you many more responsibilities. Let’s celebrate together.
Matthew 25:21 (NLT)
The Parable of the Three Servants is one of my favorite 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).
Folks, no one will ever receive more or less than they can handle. Therefore, our God-given Spiritual gifts, natural abilities, time, finance, etc. –
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. It is important to remember that God created you uniquely, to be you and no one else! To be the light in the darkness, to shine bright! To serve others faithfully, just as Jesus did. So that at the end of this life here on earth, Jesus can look at you and me and say, “well done, my good and faithful servant.” Be so obsessed with giving, serving, and being the light that there is no place for negativity — no place for fears or doubts. Because to give less than our full 100% is not serving others. And it’s not fulfilling God’s plan for your life. So think about what you do daily to add light and value to others. Radiate light, radiate love, and be more like Jesus, so that you, too, will get a “well done.”
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 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!
