“God gives us the ingredients for our daily bread, but he expects us to do the baking!”
– Chip Ingram
Use what we’ve been Given
In the Parable of the Talents, three people were given talents, and two of them doubled what they’d been given, but one of the servants simply buried his talent, not even wanting to use what he’d been given for God’s glory. The Master returns with some very serious words and says “You wicked and slothful servant! You knew that I reap where I have not sown and gather where I scattered no seed? Then you ought to have invested my money with the bankers, and at my coming I should have received what was my own with interest. So take the talent from him and give it to him who has the ten talents” (Matt 25:26-28). What you don’t use, you will lose.
