Hello everyone so this week I was pretty busy and I been struggling for a couple of weeks spiritually and what to write into this blog. On Friday we had nightwatch it was an incredible night the Lord’s presence was with us through out the night and today we took the youth bowling to spend time together as well to learn from each other.However that’s not what I want to talk about today.
Have you ever read the story about the master who gave goods( talents) to his servants; to one he gave five, to another two and to the last one ( Matthew 25:14:30). I read it and have listened to my pastor and even different people preach about it and you know what. As teen when we read something like this, we end up with the question of what is it trying to say. I never really paid attention to it, I just read and listened to it but really didn’t focused on the meaning of that parable. But I have learned that each and everyone of us or you have a talent that the lord has given you. It could be in being a musician, playing the piano,guitar, cello or even singing( yes singing is a talent not a gift). Or it could be of praying,having charisma, grace, writing a blog or a book and a bunch of other stuff.
When we look at that parable and we read from verse 16 to 18 ; we see that two out of the three servants did something with their talent they multiplied those talents by the amount they were given; however one instead of multiplying that one talent he instead dug it into the ground and didn’t do anything about it. What are you doing with; what the Lord has given into to your keeping.?
I know it’s hard sometimes to get up and try to do sometime in our lives with those talent. Most of the time we are afraid that because we are young we are unimportant, but I got news for you you are important in the eyes of God, you will always be important but try to do something with that don’t let it go to waste because if you dug it into the ground he will give it to someone else that will appreciate and work on it and then you will answers to God on that judgement day. God bless and have a nice evening.
““Then he who had received the one talent came and said, ‘Lord, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you have not sown, and gathering where you have not scattered seed. And I was afraid, and went and hid your talent in the ground. Look, there you have what is yours.’
“But his lord answered and said to him, ‘You wicked and lazy servant, you knew that I reap where I have not sown, and gather where I have not scattered seed. So you ought to have deposited my money with the bankers, and at my coming I would have received back my own with interest. Therefore take the talent from him, and give it to him who has ten talents.”
