To Whom Much Is Given…

of him shall much be required; and to whom they entrusted much, of him they will ask all the more.

I’m also guessing the same goes for those who are given little to work with. Basically, that statement means we should focus on the resources we’ve been given and exercise them to the best of our ability. Whether great or small, we are entrusted with certain gifts and resources which comes with the burden and responsibility of maximizing those resources to the best of our abilities.

Look around you and make a list of all the things you’ve been given freely be it from the economy, the government, the private sector or even your personal gifts/strengths/resources and ask yourself how best you can use them to help yourself and your economy. If you’re conversant with the Bible, you’d remember the Parable of the Talents where a master entrusted different amounts of his money to three of his servants. One got five talents, another got two talents and the last got one talent. The first two, understanding that they have been given that to maximize the resources given, traded and got a hundred percent profit of the original amount. The last one didn’t realize the implication of what was given and returned the original amount given.

Going by this, you need to look around you and make a list of what you have and how best to maximize it and get returns from what you have. Also make a list of what drains your finances, the things you can make do without and work on how to cut down on your expenses. There are all types of services required online you can subscribe to in order to get extra money. You have 24 hours in a day and a lot of resources at your disposal, maximize them today.

Have a great Monday.
