Enough to Win
“He Who is faithful in a very little thing is also faithful in much; and he who is dishonest in a very little thing is also dishonest in much” (Luke 16:10).
The parable of the talents teaches us about faithfulness (Matt. 25:14–30). Far too many Christians believe they are just like the servant who received one talent, starting with much less than other people, but in reality, the servant received as much as 20 years of wages from the master and buried it in the ground. Just like he was given more than enough to meet the master’s expectations, God gave you something you need to work with to win in this season.
We should be faithful with what God entrusted to us and maximize the use of our abilities not for our selfish purposes, but to glorify God’s name. Sometimes we miss the magnificent glory God wants to reveal to us because we mishandle the little we have right now. It took just as much work for the five-talent servant to produce five more talents as it did for the two-talent servant to produce two more talents (Matt. 25:19-23).
When you understand that God has much for you, you will know that the little you are chasing is nothing compared to what God has for you, we need to remain faithful in God’s promises for us. If you work with what God gave you, without excuses, His character will prove to be true, and He will call you a good and faithful servant (Matt. 25:21,23).
