THOU DOST PROTEST TOO MUCH

6 Daily Devotional Saturday

“To one he gave five talents, to another, two, and to another, one, each according to his own ability; and he went on his journey” (Matthew 25:15).

A continued reading of this parable reveals that when it came time to settle, that of the servants having received the five and two talents, each one needed only 14 words to account for the responsibility entrusted to them. The one who did nothing, however, utilized some 42 words to explain his irresponsible behavior. We either seize the opportunities that each day are presented to us to act faithfully and responsibly, or we spend each day filling the pages of our life history with the verbosity of making excuses and blaming others.
