When God Gives You More

The one who had received the five talents came and brought five more, saying, ‘Sir, you entrusted me with five talents. See, I have gained five more.’ His master answered, ‘Well done, good and faithful slave! You have been faithful in a few things. I will put you in charge of many things. Enter into the joy of your master.’

Matthew 25:20-21 NET

When most people talk about the parable of the talents, they focus on the servant that took his one talent and hid it until his master returned.

Of course, it didn’t go well for him.

But we don’t spend too much time focusing on the servant who doubled the talents he was given.

The master didn’t waste any time. He immediately gave him more responsibility and honor.

So what are you doing with the talents and responsibilities that the Lord has given you?

Are you hiding them? Are you adding to them? There is a direct relationship to what you do with your talents and what the Lord honors and blesses.

There is also the understanding that the Master will ask and check up on how you are handling His talents.

Just because He hasn’t asked you to account yet doesn’t mean He won’t!

And when He does, He comes with some awesome blessings if you have been faithful.

Be faithful with what He has given you! He knows what He is doing.

Father, thank You for counting me worthy to hold responsibility and talents in Your Kingdom. Let me bring You honor in everything I set my hands and hear to do.
