Daily devotional: The diligent and wise servant

Scripture
"'Yes,' the king replied, 'and to those who use well what they are given, even more will be given. But from those who do nothing, even what little they have will be taken away.'"
Luke 19:26 NLT (see vv. 11-27)

Observation
This principle could be applied to the gospel, to talents/abilities, and to finances. We are not given these blessings to sit on them. We should thoughtfully and purposely put them to good use.

Application
Don't be lazy. Share the gospel message, use my talents to serve the Lord, and be a good steward financially.

Prayer
Lord, thank you for this new day and new year. Please restore my health quickly. I pray that You would prompt me and show me how to be diligent rather than lazy, to use well what You have given me. I know that I need Your strength and Your Spirit to be successful. I give myself fully to You. I love you!
