I WAS AFRAID AND HID YOUR TALENT.
MATTHEW 25:25 NKJV
THE WORD FOR YOU
by our fear Jesus told the story of 3 men who received talents Two invested theirs
wisely and doubled them: the third was afraid to take a risk so he buried his.
When the master came looking for a return on his investment this timid soul said.
"I was afraid, and hid your talent in the ground."' His master wasn't
pleated. Listen: 'You wicked and lazy servant you ought to have deposited my money
and I would have received back
.with interest take the talent from him. and
give it to him that has ten talents 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
(MT 25:25-29 NKJV).
God expects a return on His investment in you! Part of fulfilling your calling means taking appropriate risks to maximize the opportunities you've been entrusted with Playing at faith is not commendable, avoiding risk is not to be rewarded, living out of the fear of what others will think should not be what motivates us.
Why does Jesus come down so hard on this issue? Because our loss isn't the only one suffered. Our loved ones also lose out when we don t pursue our dreams. There's a domino effect others get cheated out of the greatness lying dormant within us.
But it's not too late Like Lazarus being called out of the grave. Jesus calls each of us today to step over our fear, take risks in obedience to faith, and experience the fullness of who God made us to be As you read this daily devotional, ask God 'What are you saying to me? You'll be blessed with fresh insights every day.
THINK ON THESE THINGS - ACT ON THESE THINGS
