THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
YOU MAY NOT HAVE WHAT SOMEONE ELSE HAS, BUT GOD HAS PUT GREATNESS IN YOU
In the parable of the talents that Jesus told in Matthew 25, the owner gave one man ONE talent, another man TWO talents, and another man FIVE talents. It SEEMS like if God was FAIR, He would’ve given them all the SAME number, but God is SOVEREIGN. He might give you FIVE talents and give ME TWO talents. He’s GOD. I can COMPLAIN about the TWO, try to COMPETE with you and OUTPERFORM you, but you STILL have five and I have TWO. A BETTER approach is to say, “God, I’m not going to try to be someone who I’m NOT. I’m going to take these TWO talents and be the BEST I CAN BE.”
Don’t discount the GIFT God has put in YOU. Compared to others, it may FEEL insignificant to YOU, but there is NOTHING ordinary about you. You may not have what someone ELSE has, but God has put GREATNESS in you. If you faithfully develop the gift you HAVE, that gift will open doors to places you’ve never DREAMED.
Matthew 25:23, NLT
The master said, “Well done, my good and faithful servant. You have been faithful in handling this small amount, so now I will give you many more responsibilities. Let’s celebrate together!”
