Yesterday I heard a comment on Matthew 25:14-28 --the parable of the talents. It was eye-opening. Bill Johnson mentioned the parable and commented that God's ways are opposite of what we think is best. He took from the one who had little and who didn't use what he had, so that He could give it to the one who had the most. This is contrary to what those with a liberal agenda are pushing. They are promoting income redistribution where they want to take from the ones who have the most and give it to those who have little. As Bill suggested God is into excellence and using gifts and talents. There is no incentive for anyone to work if those who excel do not reap the rewards of their labor.
