“Therefore take away the talent from him, and give it to the one who has the ten talents. For to everyone who has, more shall be given, and he will have an abundance; but from the one who does not have, even what he does have shall be taken away” (Matthew 25:28-29).
Countless opportunities present themselves each day to be the presence of Christ; each one unique and never to be again. We often excuse our inaction by rationalizing that we will wait for another time; a more appropriate time, only to discover this was the only time we had. Our Father isn’t interested in what we might do if given certain opportunities, but what we do with the specific opportunities that cross our path each day. We worry much about doing the right thing only to discover that doing nothing is the greater indictment.
