Sloth pt 1

Definition

SLOTH – a failure to fulfill your place, to maximize what God has given you.

Read Matthew 25:14-30

Never let lack of resources be an excuse for not doing what God wants you to do. We cannot use what we do not have, but God will not give us anything we cannot use.

What ‘talents’ has he placed in your stewardship that are ‘buried’ rather than invested?

God gives you things so you can work to improve or multiply them. He does not give us money or jobs or children or relationships so we can sit back and enjoy them. He gives to us so we can make something more out of the raw materials.

Jesus, what do I have that I am not using? What gifts, what talents, what resources are sitting in reserve while work goes undone?

I am tired of sitting on the bench, tired of waiting for opportunities. I want to be used and use what you have given me.
