Daily Nugget

    Saturday, October 5th, 2013.  Today's cherished Nugget from guest blogger Pastor Bill.

Some time ago in Reader’s Digest there was a short article about a group of sea gulls that was starving to death in St. Augustine. They were not starving because of a food shortage but because they had forgotten how to fish. For years they had depended on the shrimp fleet operating out of the harbor to toss them scraps from the nets. When the shrimp fleet moved to Key West, they began to starve. They had lost their natural ability to fish because they had not been using it.

This is a rule of nature. If you do not use what you have, it will be taken from you. This is the lesson in the parable of the talents. The servant who did not use the one talent had it taken from him (Matthew 25:28). This agrees with the old adage, ‘Use it or lose it.’ Let us be good a steward of the gifts and resources we are blessed with.
God, help us to use the talents You have blessed us with. Amen.
