How To Not Bury Your Talent

How do you keep from burying your God-given talents? That's a question probably every Christian has struggled with. Here are a few thoughts on the subject.

To begin with, it is God's glory to hide a matter, but a king's honor to search it out (Proverbs 25:2). In other words, He hides, we seek. It's child's play. (Mark 10:15)

Do no-fun attitudes dump dirt on talents? Well, what kind of employee tells his boss, "You're impossible! If you expected that kind of fruit from me, you should have given me more to work with. But no. All you do is take (Matthew 25:24-25, paraphrased from the King James)

Now that's the mind-set of a talent burier. He sees his boss as an unfair miser. Those who see God as a miser become misers themselves. And misers get nothing but misery. But those who know their God will be strong and do exploits (Daniel 11:32).

It's all a matter of getting to know Him. You can do that by:

Reading His Word (Romans 10:17, Exodus 34:6-7, Psalm 103, John 3:16, I John 4:8);

Seeking His face in prayer (II Chronicles 7:14, Psalm 27:8, Jeremiah 29:13, Matthew 7:11, James 1:5& 17); and by

Thanking Him and praising Him in every circumstance (Psalm 100:4; Ephesians 5:18-20; I Thessalonians 5:18).

As you get to know Him, He will reveal his plans for the talents He has deposited in your account.
