Expanding Our Capacity
I love the parable of the talents. It’s a paradigm shifter for me as I look at how to live in this world until Christ returns.
It helps me to:
- resist comparisons with people who are more talented than I am
- embrace my God-given limits
- live aggressively within those limits
- have an eternal perspective on my daily work
Those lessons are so practical. They affect my daily decisions and change my attitude toward my work. These are life principles I apply often.
But the game changer was when I discovered that the parable is more than “life principles for daily living.” They are about a Person.
I invite you to see Jesus in this parable. Taste his grace. Hear good news that will rock your world.
