This is going to be short and sweet, straight-no chaser. Haha! I preached a sermon titled Straight, No Chaser you can find here for a little extra inspiration if this is too short for you. What are you doing with your talents sis? It’s true, some of us are employed within the health industry, and I am praying for your strength during this time, but the vast number of us, have found our commitments greatly diminished. That is why I am asking what are you doing with your talents?
In the parable of the talents, Jesus tells a story of three employees or stewards who were given talents (their form of currency in the day) to invest. Two of the servants put their talents to work and doubled their investments. The last one hid his in the ground. Was he afraid? He says he was. Did he get caught up in a comparison trap? Maybe. Did he look at the little he was given and lose motivation? Possibly. The speculation could continue, but it’s not as important as the point. The point is that he allowed an excuse to slow him down and rob him of his potential.
My question is are we doing the same? Are we using our family members to excuse our inactivity? Are we using our environment to excuse our lack of productivity? Are we using our limited accessibility to excuse our development? Model a great work ethic to your family members as you bring them alongside you. Clean up your space. Join a zoom call. Stop it with the excuses because if we are smart about it, we can come out of this space wiser, smarter, richer (mmhhmm, I said it), and ready-er (even though I know that’s not a word) than we have ever been.
I’d love to know how you’ve been spending your time so comment below because I can use all of the encouragement I can get to. Love you to life!
