The Parable Of The Wasted Oil
A few minutes ago, I messed around and spilled some oil on the asphalt. this is one of my favorites.
I love it so much I wanted to save the amount that was wasted from off the ground.
at the very moment of me wanting to dive into the asphalt and risk it all, I thought: "this must be how God feels when we don't use our talents."
Of course I can say so much about wasted oil and wasted talent. I can make mention of the anointing, our divine purposeful calling we each have on our lives, talk about the parable of the talents where the foolish servant did nothing with his, and had no growth or prosperity.
Much can be said about wasting the beauty and gifts of life that God has given us, but I would love to have some encouraging feedback.
What scriptures, proverbs, or wise quotes come to mind when you think about wasted gifts, talents, and using them toward divine purpose? Share your thoughts in the comments.
