The parable of the talents in Matthew 25:11-30, is a vivid picture of God holding us accountable for using the gifts He entrusted to us.
Christians, let us use our God-given gifts to advance God’s kingdom. Invite someone to church or a small group, or christian concert. Take a co-worker or fellow student, etc to lunch and ask if you can pray for them during lunch. Buy food for someone in need, and pray for them. Volunteer at your local church to fill an area of need. Go on a missions trip. Do your work with excellence and when recognized, give glory to God. Pass out gospel tracts to non-Christians, and on and on.
Do something! Refuse to leave opportunities to advance the kingdom unattended.
Christians, after a day of faithful service, listen for the Lord to whisper in your ear, “well done my good and faithful servant.”
