Since early in my life this scripture has stuck in my heart. “Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!” Matthew 25:21 To this day it still rings in my heart. These are the words I long to hear from my savior.
I do want to use the talents, abilities and gifts Jesus has given me for His purpose and not my own. It’s easy to use those things which are actually His to edify and glorify ourselves. It could be anything from singing, making money or any other talent or ability we have.
We all need to realize that we will all be standing before our Lord someday. What will He say to us? Are those words important to you?
