Topic: What God Expects [Billy Graham Devotional 24 July 2020]
He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much . . . — Luke 16:10
What God expects, and all God expects, is that we dedicate completely all of our talents and gifts to Him. That is the meaning of the parable of the talents in Matthew, chapter 25. Read this parable, and you will see that we are always rewarded because of our faithfulness. You can be just as faithful as anyone and have the commendation of the Lord. Take the one talent you have and invest it in eternal things. Some talented people lose their reward because they do things to be seen of men. Some untalented people lose their reward because they fail to dedicate what they have, because it is not noticed by men. Both have sinned equally.
Prayer for the day:
Let me not be concerned with the praise of men, but may my talent be completely yielded to You, Lord Jesus.
