What Am I Doing With What I Have Been Given?

“For it is like a man about to go on a journey. He called his own servants and handed over his possessions to them. To one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one, each according to his own ability. Then he went on his journey. “Immediately the one who had received the five talents went and traded with them and gained five more. In the same way, the one with two gained two more. But the one who received one went off and dug a hole in the ground and hid his master’s money. “Now after a long time, the master of those servants came and settled accounts with them. The one who had received the five talents came up and brought another five talents, saying, ‘Master, you handed me five talents. Look, I’ve gained five more.’ His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You were faithful with a little, so I’ll put you in charge of much. Enter into your master’s joy!’ “The one who had received the two talents also came up and said, ‘Master, you handed me two talents. Look, I’ve gained two more.’ His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You were faithful with a little, so I’ll put you in charge of much. Enter into your master’s joy!’ “Then the one who had received the one talent also came up and said, ‘Master, I knew that you are a hard man, reaping where you didn’t sow and gathering where you scattered no seed. So I was afraid, and I went off and hid your talent in the ground. See, you have what is yours.’ “But his master responded, ‘You wicked, lazy servant! You knew that I reap where I didn’t sow and gather where I scattered no seed? Then you should have brought my money to the brokers, and when I came I would have received it back with interest. Therefore take the talent away from him, and give it to the one who has the ten talents. For to the one who has, more shall be given, and he shall have an abundance. But from the one who does not have, even what he does have shall be taken away. Throw the worthless servant out, into the outer darkness where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’”

The Holy scriptures on this topic should be an opportunity for us to self evaluate to identify which of the three classifications we fall into.  It is not to late for us to make adjustments if needed.  The LORD wants us to be good financial stewards in managing our finances accordingly.  Don’t let your finances control your situation, instead be the controller of your finances with God’s wisdom to compliment your situation in life.

Two Kinds of Wisdom

What is the problem with many Corporate America leaders where they claim to have wisdom? There are actually few leaders that has wisdom and it is shown through their good deeds to others. Yes, we must do our best at work and do better through our good deeds for others.

Many of today’s Corporate America leaders only think and focus on their business or work; only leaving God, family and church on a “maybe things to do list”.

In the Holy scripture in books James 3:13-18 talks about the two kinds of wisdom that man has. The scripture say “Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show it by his good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom. But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth. Such “wisdom” does not come down from heaven but is earthly, nonspiritual, of the devil. For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.

But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. Peacemakers who sow in peace raise a harvest of righteousness.”

How many of us are wise and understanding in our walk with God and walking the walk today in faith? The holy scriptures states that let it be shown by his good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom.

Remember, for where we have envy and selfish ambition, there we will find disorder and every evil practice.

Let us take a few minutes to perform a self check evaluation of ourselves and take corrective actions if needed to align our deeds accordingly.

May God Bless You Always,
