“Give the world the best you have and the best will come back to you.” – Madeline Bridges
In Matthew 25 there is the parable of the talents. Some were productive and some not. The ones that were the master blessed with even more. The one that wasn’t lost everything.
We only get out of this life what we put into it. “But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully,” (2 Corinthians 9:6). I believe this principle applies with every area of our lives.
Too many are looking for blessings without putting their best foot forward. Thomas Edison said, “Opportunity is missed by most people because it comes dressed in overalls and looks like work.”
God honors the diligence of those who work to put their best foot forward. “For the labourer is worthy of his hire,” (Luke 10:7). He rewards those that do their best. Whether in the parable of the talents or in Colossians 3:23, when we do our best we can look forward to reaping the best. “The best will come back to you!”
If you don’t like what you have been reaping, check to see what you have been sowing. Have we been half-stepping or have we given it our all, “as for the Lord?”
Life can be overwhelming sometimes. Ask God to help you deal with your daily schedule and the works that you have to do and DO YOUR BEST TODAY! Don’t let your talents go to waste!
