Oct.19- One of the greatest risks in life is to risk nothing.

risksinlifeWant to scratch the surface for hope?  I`m reminded of the parable of the talents (money). The story of a master going away and he entrusts three of his slaves with talents, depending on their abilities. When he returns two of them doubled their talents. The third one did nothing and gained nothing. The first two men knew their master and what he would expect of them. The third slave mistrusted and feared his master and so gained nothing. A lesson here is that we are all given and entrusted with many resources and are expected to be good caretakers and bless others.

Make a decision and be a blessing to others. Let’s use our resources for good. USE IT OR LOSE IT!

“For to everyone who has, more shall be given, and he will have abundance; but for the one who does not have, even what he does have shall be taken away.” Matthew 25:29 (NAS)

About bshiveofhope

I have worn different hats and travelled down many bunny trails in life- custodian, writer, florist, grandma, community nurse, mom, wife, Jesus Girl. With these vocations have come many stories and life experiences that I want to share with you. They're not all warm and fuzzy, and are sprinkled with humility, and sadness. That's life. We were made for community so let's build each other up with hope and encouragment.
