HH, Sir Godfrey Gregg D.Div
“ He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much.” (Luke 16:10).
The man that missed his opportunity and met the doom of the faithless servant was not the man with five talents or the man with two, but the man who had only one.
The people who are in danger of missing life’s great meaning are the people of ordinary capacity and opportunity, and who say to themselves, “There is so little I can do that I will not try to do anything.” One of the finest windows in Europe was made from the remnants an apprentice boy collected from the cuttings of his master’s great work. The sweepings of the British mint are worth millions.
The little pivots on which the works of your watch turn are so important that they are actually made of jewels. And so God places a solemn value and responsibility on the humble workers, the people that try to hide behind their insignificance the trifling opportunities and the single talents; and our littleness will not excuse us in the reckoning day.
I pray God this morning that we may not hide the talents that were given to us, though small or insignificance they may be. That is only to the eyes but of deeper and greater meaning to many more. You man not have a church or able to preach, but you just show up and bless someone. You may not have the voice to sing praise to the Lord but you can shout Hallelujah. All that God wants from us is to be humble, clean hands and a pure heart and with that, you are to Be living right in His sight and that of all men.
Do not miss your opportunity to shine in this life and do not let anyone bring you down because you do not meet their standard. Just live for God.
