What are you doing with your TALENT?
External gifts of grace, the gifts & talents of the Spirit,
which qualify & empower men & women for service unto Christ & to others,
may be taken away, as Jesus taught in parable of the talents in Matthew 25:14-30.
Are you hiding your talents?
Have you buried your gifts?
Then, know this, you are lacking in LOVE.
You are selfish.
If you refuse to use the talents God has given you for His glory & for the good of others,
this reveals your lovelessness for Christ
& your lack of compassionate concern for your neighbor.
The Master showed in His parable that He will come & take away
the little talent you have if you bury your gifts or hide your talent under a bushel!
(Matt 5:14-16;Mark 4:21)
Anything that Jesus has given you to glorify Him is also given to you as a means of loving Him & your neighbor.
Beloved, while your God-given "gifts" & "talents" will eventually fail,
cease & vanish away, love will never fail. (I Corinthians 13)
We must work the works of Him who sent us while it is still Day;
for the night is coming, when no one can work. (John 9:4)
Use the gifts & talents the Lord has given you.
Work while it is still Day!
Let your light shine before men,
that they may see your good works
and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.
