What will you answer?11 January 2017
Our life is like a war, a market, a school, a long sea voyage. In battle, you can’t just take time out; in trade you can’t be idle; in school you can’t be inattentive; and there’s no room for carelessness on a sea voyage. So don’t be last, don’t be inattentive in doing God’s work, but put yourself about and work hard. For you, this is the battlefield, this is the market-place, this is the school. You’ve got the talent; don’t hide it, multiply it. What will you say on the dread day of judgement when you’ve not only failed to multiply your talent, but haven’t even managed to get any interest on it?
