For the kingdom of heaven is as a man traveling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered to them his goods.…
What is it to trade with what God has given us, and how does the increase come?
1. Whatever God commits to us, gift or grace, has within itself a tendency to grow. The secret of worldly success is —
1. To set about at once to make the best use of whatever we have. God often puts a good thought into the mind; do not trifle, but make the best of it. Christ will come again. Love can be thus enlarged, the intellect, memory. Consecrated time becomes larger time. Specially happy the man who has put millions of minds into God's bank. Money.
2. Make a good investment by investing in eternity.
3. You are sure of good security, the promise and fidelity of God.
(J. Vaughan, M. A.)
