For whoever has will be given more, and they will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them. – Matthew 25:29 (NIV)

What a sobering parable! One of the things that Jesus wants to get through to us is that it is better to try and fail than to not try at all. America is a nation that likes comfort, but comfort can come at a high price. We can easily avoid taking risks simply to maintain the status quo. But life was never about the status quo; we were made for an abundant life. Jesus tells us to not hold back what He has given us. Use what talent you have to the fullest. You may be surprised that God is ready to give you more as you do.
