Investing into Darkness

The Parable of the Talents

Matthew14 “For it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants[a] and entrusted to them his property. 15 To one he gave five talents,[b] to another two, to another one, to each according to his ability. Then he went away. 16 He who had received the five talents went at once and traded with them, and he made five talents more. 17 So also he who had the two talents made two talents more. 18 But he who had received the one talent went and dug in the ground and hid his master’s money. 19 Now after a long time the master of those servants came and settled accounts with them. 20 And he who had received the five talents came forward, bringing five talents more, saying, ‘Master, you delivered to me five talents; here I have made five talents more.’ 21 His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant.[c] You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.’ 22 And he also who had the two talents came forward, saying, ‘Master, you delivered to me two talents; here I have made two talents more.’ 23 His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.’ 24 He also who had received the one talent came forward, saying, ‘Master, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you did not sow, and gathering where you scattered no seed, 25 so I was afraid, and I went and hid your talent in the ground. Here you have what is yours.’ 26 But his master answered him, ‘You wicked and slothful servant! You knew that I reap where I have not sown and gather where I scattered no seed? 27 Then you ought to have invested my money with the bankers, and at my coming I should have received what was my own with interest. 28 So take the talent from him and give it to him who has the ten talents. 29 For to everyone who has will more be given, and he will have an abundance. But from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away. 30 And cast the worthless servant into the outer darkness. In that placethere will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’

 

Leadership

Being called into Leadership, having no limitations on being who you were created to be. How many of us are called? But how many of us answer the calling on our lives? We have to move out of our own way so God can use the “Greater Works in you” to lead a nation.

Love Is The Way

Love is a feeling , thought, touch, and emotion that nearly all the human race has knowingly and unknowingly set out to find. Some know they’re on this journey by the desire to be loved while others are persuaded through the lust for love. We also have those who chose to love from afar.  However you choose to live and press love out, is up to you but remember to manifest love.

Loving life is essential because life has been given to exemplify love. Love to many is unconditional and to others it is given by condition. Self analysis is useful to find where your level of love engages. Self-analysis gives one true accountability on how they feel and treat others in the area of love. When you feel you’re not acquainted to love properly or you need more understanding concerning love look around at all the individuals you affect daily. How effective are you with showing genuine feelings of acceptance to others? When you can accept others on their level wherever this may be, you then begin to see unconditional love surfacing in you. To judge the individual’s action or state of being says there is a problem with acceptance. The solution is found in better relating, thought out, or tactful communication. The acceptance could be concerning their culture or even the way they clean.  When you love them you except the culture as a package deal, you embrace the culture because of your commitment in the relationship. Cleaning the house is simple acceptance concerning opinions on how one or the other does things, embracing the opinion for peace and change will come.

Using love on the job and business? Your communication could be the number one resource to make someone’s day great. While at the same time your communication could be the resource that makes their day not so great. The point is remembering by loving kindness blessings are drawn to thee. Without kindness how can anything come close to you. Without love and kindness we tend to repel anything good, we tend to draw negatives because this is what were giving out. Even love desires to be accepted into your life as a human desires the same acceptance.

In romantic relationships the conditional aspect says I love you for what you can do for me which is why many relationships and marriages fail. Unconditional has to be added to relationships for longevity. With unconditional love we learn from ourselves or within to love ourselves first. Once this is accomplished we are able to accomplish love within a partnership. There are no conditions to my love for you  I love all of you because I see beyond your faults. At the end of the day loving yourself will heal the past pain conquering the sins of limitation from yesterday, releasing you to help other carry and work through their baggage.  Is your love making a brighter day?
