Okay, you are right. Yes, it is another post that does involve some political jargon. Unless you’ve been under a rock in the bottom of the sea you probably have heard of Obama’s idea for wealth redistribution. The plans he has made for those that are rich to unwillingly give their money to the poor and the poor to then get the money to spend and soon everybody has no incentive to work and everybody will all work together as middle class or something. Well, ya I guess that Bens idea of how it works, but what I want to share with you today is God’s redistribution plan. This thought popped out to me as I was reading my Bible this morning. In Matthew chapter twenty five verse twenty eight and twenty nine it says, “Take therefore the talent from him and give it unto him which hath ten talents. For unto every one that hath shall be given , and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath.”
Now this story is an example of how the Lord will rewarded those that did something with what He taught. They saw their position as stewards. They saw what the Lord had given them to be stewards of and they proceeded with the task. Well, at least two of them did. The third guy thought that since he only had one talent he didn’t have to do anything with it. That was a foolish man. In the end he lost the single talent he had and was punished because of his lack of work. God redistributed this guys single talent to the guy with ten talents because he was diligent with what he received. Whether you have two talents or two hundred. Don’t think about the amount you have, just simply get busy with what you have. You don’t want God to have to distribute your talents when you stand before him one day.
Put each talent to good use!
