When you have the faculty to accomplish what others consider as a difficulty, the difficulty comes to you as a walk in the park. Whatever you do graciously is indicative of God's talent to help you carve a niche for yourself. It should be cultivated and not allowed to vegetate. People who allow their talents to gather dust and rut away undermine their ability to make impact. The parable of the talents revealed that making most use of your talent keep you above the curve and position you to solve problems. If you aren't leveraging God's grace to the max, you stand the risk of falling out of grace with God.
It often said that life is short and time is swift. A German novelist Johann Wolfgang von Goethe said, “Things that matter most must never be at the mercy of things that matter least.” If you attach much weight and importance to matters that wouldn't keep you in the front line or mainstream of your goals, you are advertently losing the opportunity to maximise your potential. The Psalmist says, "One thing have I desired of the Lord,...to behold the beauty of the Lord'. Because some are not circumspect enough to relish the fellowship with God, they get caught up with time wasters which devalue their ability to make sterling impact.
The Macedonian church are more than a notch well disposed to giving compared to the Corinthian church, because they were much more willing to part with their treasure towards meeting the needs of the poor at Jerusalem. They gave out of their poverty while putting less stock in the need to have something in reserve as a security against their future and emergency needs. Matthew Henry wrote, "We should be charitable to the poor out of what we have, because we ourselves live upon the charity of the Lord
Jesus Christ. Without God's charity, our lives would have been shattered and battered through the oppression of the devil. By extending our hands to the poor, we help in closing the door to the scourge of poverty, which undermines its potential to take its toll on the lives of men. Today, take a bold step towards putting a smile on someone's face.
