“14 For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods. 15And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey.” Matthew 25:14 (KJV)
Can you imagine another one of ‘You’ walking around? Some are saying “scary”. Could it be that in the back of their minds they realize that they have some major imperfections. No matter how nice and pleasant we look on the outside there are things within us that would be better left unknown to people. On the other hand there are some graces, characteristics that would be better served if they were multiplied in ones we love. The Word of God speaks clearly about the “multiplication factor”. Jesus spoke a parable of the servants that multiplied their talents for their Master, Adam and Eve were commanded to multiply, Noah used multiplication in his gathering for preservation. Whenever there is something worth increase we are told to multiply.
Your talents of love, compassion and acceptance can also be multiplied impacting those within your circle of influence. People, staff and students will be affected by the energy and Godly example you inspire when we are connected unto Christ’s Spirit. Here’s the scary part: We must always be at our best to inspire multiplication of the graces and characteristics to impressionable minds. Multiply those godly talents, traits and gifts that you have been entrusted with. It’s only then we could truly say: “I wouldn’t mind seeing another one of ‘me’ walking around”.
