“Whoever has will be given more, and they will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them” – Mathew 13:12 (NIV).
The Parable of Talents (Mat 25:14-30) tells the story of one person who sat on his talents and another person who put his to good use. The one who made good use was later rewarded richly!
There are some people who live a full life. They spend their hours here on earth most profitably using every moment in productive pursuits. Like one Dr. Stephen Talitwala. He and Dr. Micheal Senyimba along with Dr. Daniel Kyanda started the Fellowship of Christian Union Students of Uganda (FOCUS) Ministry which evangelizes and disciples students across universities in Uganda. Later Dr. Talitwala would spearhead the founding of Daystar University in Kenya. At the same time he and Dr. Micheal Senyimba were the pioneer Chancellor and Vice Chancellor of Ndejje University, respectively.
Someone like Dr. Talitwala was blessed with many gifts. But even more important, he has not sat on them- but put them to full use, just as the Parable of Talents! How about you and I! And remember a great reward awaits these- just as the good and faithful servant in the Parable of Talents!
Prayer for the day: Lord Father I pray with your help I use the gifts you gave me fully in the work of your kingdom!
