“I was afraid I might disappoint you, so I found a good hiding place and secured your money. Here it is, safe and sound down to the last cent.”
“The master was furious. ‘That’s a terrible way to live! It’s criminal to live cautiously like that!”
Matthew 25:25 MSG
When God invests in you, puts something in your hands, in your heart or in your personality, He expects you to do something with it.
This verse says it’s criminal to live cautiously with God given-investments.
The third servant in the story took what his master gave him and “dug a hole and buried it” (vs16).
Beth Moore says “Sometimes, we can protect ourselves right out of our calling.”
Cautious Living is a crime in God’s eyes.
He loves you passionately and wants you to boldly get to work the visions, gifts, and callings that He has given you.
You may be asking God to give you more…but he may be asking, “What are you doing with what I’ve already given you?”
What has God invested in you?
What have you buried in fear?
What does it look like to multiply what God has invested in you?
