join the fun

Thursday November 20th, Matthew 25:  14 “Again, the Kingdom of Heaven can be illustrated by the story of a man going on a long trip. He called together his servants and entrusted his money to them while he was gone. 15 He gave five bags of silver to one, two bags of silver to another, and one bag of silver to the last—dividing it in proportion to their abilities. He then left on his trip.  Life is not fair so it seems. Not everyone is blessed with each and every talent in the world. Each one of us has gifts for the kingdom however.  They become gifts for us as well as for the kingdom when they are used. It is when we use our talents and gifts along with the talents and gifts of others that we realize the strength of our gift. Carbon is not very strong. Even iron is not that strong. But carbon and iron together make steel which is a whole different ball game. Carbon left to its own is rather brittle and soft, how many times have you broken a pencil lead. You can use your talents and your gifts all by yourself and come up with some wonderful things like carbon, when used and worked into “Bucky Balls” or “Bucky Tubes” is even stronger than steel, but still even they are rather useless all by themselves.  So it is with the talents God has given each and every one of us. By themselves they are a gift. When used, whether by themselves or in conjunction with the gifts of others, they become the thing of miracles. God invites you to join the fun and to reach out, serve and incite miracles.
