Matthew 25:19-30
19 “After a long time their master returned from his trip and called them to give an account of how they had used his money. 20 The servant to whom he had entrusted the five bags of gold said, ‘Sir, you gave me five bags of gold to invest, and I have doubled the amount.’ 21 The master was full of praise. ‘Well done, my good and faithful servant. You have been faithful in handling this small amount, so now I will give you many more responsibilities. Let’s celebrate together!’ 22 “Next came the servant who had received the two bags of gold, with the report, ‘Sir, you gave me two bags of gold to invest, and I have doubled the amount.’ 23 The master said, ‘Well done, my good and faithful servant. You have been faithful in handling this small amount, so now I will give you many more responsibilities. Let’s celebrate together! 24 “Then the servant with the one bag of gold came and said, ‘Sir, I know you are a hard man, harvesting crops you didn’t plant and gathering crops you didn’t cultivate. 25 I was afraid I would lose your money, so I hid it in the earth and here it is. 26 “But the master replied, ‘You wicked and lazy servant! You think I’m a hard man, do you, harvesting crops I didn’t plant and gathering crops I didn’t cultivate? 27 Well, you should at least have put my money into the bank so I could have some interest. 28 Take the money from this servant and give it to the one with the ten bags of gold. 29 To those who use well what they are given, even more will be given, and they will have an abundance. But from those who are unfaithful, even what little they have will be taken away. 30 Now throw this useless servant into outer darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

We must not make excuses to avoid doing what God calls us to do. We see from this parable that all of us are given something from God. We all have talents or abilities to do something for Him. And we all placed into positions of responsibility no matter what it is. It is not an excuse to compare ourselves to others and say, “I will never be able to do that!” It doesn’t matter what someone else is doing, you are called to work where you are and with what you have. You will not be judged on someone else’s position or talents, but on your own. So start with where you are. Are you married? Start with loving your spouse and giving them what they need according to what the Word of God teaches. Do you have children? Then start by loving them and teaching them the love of God. Are you working at a job? Than start by working that job as if God were your employer. Are you part of a church? Then do something in that body to help it become strong. Even if it is washing dishes or scrubbing toilets, do it as if you were doing for Him. Because in all of these positions you are doing it for Him. So you see no one will have an excuse on that Day when you are before Him. Start with where you are and do it as if it was for Him and He will say to you. “Well done, my good and faithful servant.”

Have a God Day!
