God is not a micro-manager…..
The Parable of the Bags of Gold
(Matthew 25: 14-30) New International Version
14“Again, it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants and entrusted his wealth to them.
(BASICALLY… I AM LEAVING THE CRIB, HOLD IT DOWN WHILE I’M OUT).
15 To one he gave five bags of gold, to another two bags, and to another one bag, a each according to his ability. Then he went on his journey. 16 The man who had received five bags of gold went AT ONCE and put his money to work and gained five bags more. 17 So also, the one with two bags of gold gained two more. 18 But the man who had received one bag went off, dug a hole in the ground and hid his master’s money.
Questions to ponder: When you were younger, did you parents ever leave you at the house alone ? Or has your boss ever been gone for the day?
WHAT DID YOU DO?
WHAT DO YOU DO?
