This is your B moment. Your moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: Matthew 25:29 (NLT)
Today I am reminding you how God can turn your little into more.
As graduation is upon us, and my youngest son graduates from college tomorrow, I am delighted to honor this year’s graduates. When I think more about it, graduation is about ending one season and starting a new one.
Starting a new job or career means we begin at an entry level where our earnings may be very little. However, if we follow the teachings of Jesus, he shows us how to turn our little into more.
Once. he explained that there was a man going on a long trip, so he called his servants together. Giving one of his servants five bags of gold, the man told him to invest it for him while he was gone.
After he left, the servant was actually able to double the man’s initial investment of five bags of gold, so that when the man returned, there were ten bags of gold. Because the servant had been trustworthy with the small amount, the man decided to begin giving him more responsibilities.
At the same time, the man had also given one bag of gold to another servant. Instead of investing it though, the servant buried it and did not produce any profit. That servant did not earn the man’s trust and instead, lost responsibilities.
The key is to embrace where you are and excel in your tasks, knowing that God is watching. Once you’ve mastered that entry level, He will surely open the doors to more.
As you think about that, remember these words: “To those who use well what they are given, even more will be given, and they will have abundance. But from those who do nothing, even what little they have will be taken away.” Matthew 25:29 (NLT)
So today, embrace your do-over.
