“For it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants and entrusted to them his property. To one he gave five talents, to another two, to another one, to each according to his ability. Then he went away.” Matthew 25:14-15
In Matthew 25:1-30, we read of the servants who received talents from their Master. The servant who received one talent, did nothing but bury it, and when the Master returned, the servant had no increase to show.
This servant did nothing with His talent because He suffered from the malady of wrong thinking.
You see, His thoughts were negative… He meditated on His Master being a harsh and demanding man…. and he did nothing. So, he received nothing. And, what was even worse was that the Master who gave it to him, received no return on his investment… not even interest.
We cannot think negatively about God, ourselves and our situation in life and expect to prosper. In order to run and finish our race well, we must think that we can and be positive about it.
God has entrusted to you His property. He has given you what you need to “do business” on this earth. You have at least one resource, gift or talent that you can offer to this world. You were sent to earth pre-wired and fully loaded to accomplish your Divine assignment.
Much has been invested into your life. And, because of the value of what’s inside of you, God’s expects a return on His investment.
Choose positive thoughts and create the life you want to live. Challenge yourself to think about your life and situations positively. Feed yourself on the Word of God, hang around positive people, listen to positive messages. As you do, you will begin to think as accurately and be able to partner with God to accomplish your life goals.
As you think right, you will speak right and act right!
