Remember the parable of the talents how one guy was given ten, another guy was given five and the third guy was given one? The first two did something with their talents and they were praised by the master. The third guy buried his in the ground and was judged. The master tells the third guy he could have at least put it in the bank and got some interest on it. He could have at least done the minimum rather than doing nothing.
We are the same. We can at least do something. If we all do something for the kingdom a lot will get accomplished. We can all do something in our churches. If you're going to church, that's a great step. But are you doing more than that? Are you investing your time just a little bit? It could be inviting people to church. It could be cleaning the church. It could be sharing words of encouragement. It could be doing works of art. There are as many ways of sharing your talents in the church as there are people. If you don't know what to do ask God He'll give you an idea. But just don't say you are too busy. Please. We need you to do something. You need yourself to do something. We need to work together and invest in each other. We have too many surface relationships. And they make us lonely.
We are in a spiritual war and the enemy loves to lull us to sleep. Remember the ten virgins? How even the ones who had the oil were starting to fall asleep before the master arrived? We are to be alert. If we quit fighting we will fall asleep. We will start looking like the world and before you know it we won't be any different than those who don't know Jesus. And then we will be ineffective. Don't let that happen. Please.
