Reference Text: Matthew 25:14-30
Matthew 25:25 And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine.
We have seen all around us people who have resigned themselves to accept the label that society has placed on them as being inadequate, ‘good for nothing’ or unable to amount to very much in life. For these people, the very concept of fruitfulness and expansion often seems rather alien as they prefer to stay ‘safely’ within their assigned bracket.
From the Gospel account today, we see men given talents based on their ‘ability’ and tasked with making something out of it. From the outcomes observed, if there is one reasonable conclusion that can be deduced from this parable, it is the fact that everyone, if willing, has the capability to grow whatever is entrusted to them- a position, money, a gift or a talent.
We may not be able to ‘double our money’ like those mentioned today, but we can work towards ensuring that in the very least, we strive take a few steps further forward from our starting position. Every now and then, we look for and come up with the odd excuse why some things cannot be and why we are the worst choices for any work of growth. But as stated, that is just our excuse.
Sweetheart, a deeper look within will reveal to us that we are capable of a lot more than we let on and that stagnation, is never a thing we should embrace because multiplication and growth ought to be an intrinsic part of our lives.
Remember # The only person in capable of multiplication, is the person who does nothing at all.
