“Teaching My Children Gratitude is what I must start doing,” Mr Alfred said to himself. Mr Alfred was the father of Taiwo and Kenny.
Taiwo and Kenny are twins. They both are returning to school.
Their dad gave Taiwo some amount of money for upkeep.
Taiwo was provoked, saying the amount was small.
Kenny, on the other hand, was given the same amount of money. He went flat prostrating, thanking his father.
He already mapped out how to spend the money, such that it will last him for the month.
That was how a master gave talents to his servants.
One he gave 5, to another 2, and to another, 1 talent.
I believe we know the story.
God expects us to be grateful first for everything we have through our parents or others.
He also expects us to do business with what he has his given is.
Don’t be like Taiwo and the ungrateful servant? Be like Kenny, who used his talents well.
Each had a reward? Which reward would you like to have?
The good –
“The master said, well done, my good and faithful servant. You have been faithful in handling the small amount, so now I will give you many more responsibilities. Let’s celebrate together!”Matt.25:23 (NLT)
The bad –
“To those who use well what they are given, even more will be given, and they will have an abundance. But from those who do nothing, even what little they have will be taken away.”Matt 25:29 (NLT)
Be grateful for all you have and use them well. As a parent, say this to yourself: “Teaching My Children Gratitude Is My Responsibility.”
Lord, I am grateful for my parents and all the people you have used to bless me.
I am a grateful soul. I make good use of what is given to me. Amen
