He replied, ‘I tell you that to everyone who has, more will be given, but as for the one who has nothing, even what they have will be taken away.’ – Luke 19:26-27
This is a jarring parable. It seems that Jesus is teaching that God is not as concerned about how many resources that we have as much as how well we use those resources. We are tempted to think, “If I only had more money.” or ” All I need are more opportunities.” But this parable tells us that God has already given us resources. What are we doing with them? When God is in the picture, all Moses needed was a staff to deliver the Jewish people from bondage. What has God already put in your hand? How can you use your talent in such a way that our heavenly Father will be able entrust you with more?
