Using Your Talents With Joy

Published by Kristen on

The parable of the talents has always been one of the most challenging parables for me. Today it felt especially relevant as I’m looking at how to serve God with all of the talents that He has given to me. My ambition is to make sure that this time on earth is spent investing in His will.

This in tandem with the topic of Joy that God keeps putting on my heart is an interesting combination. I realized that I have great Joy when I am investing in the things of God. With life and it’s craziness it’s so easy to be myopic and stress about to-do lists, but I hope that I can look past the mundane and see the purpose of it all and have Joy in the small investments in the Kingdom of God.

His master replied, 'Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!'
