Reflection of the Week - 17 November 2020
Posted in Faith
Faithful risking is scary. In Matthew 25:14-30 one servant didn’t know their Master very well because they hid their one talent rather than risk losing it. The Master had taken many risks to increase his fortune and certainly risked losing eight coins by trusting these servants to increase their income. Perhaps if the one talent slave had risked losing the meagre amount he was given, he might have seen a different side of the Master who could celebrate the action rather than the result. God risks so much for humanity … do we risk showing God’s love to the world? Do we risk speaking words of compassion, challenge and faith – or do we hide ourselves away from scrutiny?
