“For to every one who has will more be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who has not, even what he has will be taken away” (Matthew 25:29).
These words are a summary of Jesus’ parable of the talents. In the parable, a homeowner went on a trip and entrusted three servants with various sums of money. Two of the three invested the money and were commended by the homeowner. The third buried his portion because he feared the consequences of losing it.
The key to the kingdom illustrated in the above parable is this: begin giving now from what you have and from where you are. Wallace D. Wattles (1860–1911), author of the classic, The Science of Getting Rich, wrote these simple words of wisdom: “Put your whole mind into present action.”
Where do you want to go in life? Invest all of your being in your vision doing everything you know right now to bring it about. Do not bury your “talent” wishing, worrying, regretting or discussing how bad things are. Pull out all the stops and start pouring your imagination, faith, and ability to act into the thing you desire. Are you in need of healing? Commit absolutely to it now. Make every mental image, every emotion conform to what you want and settle for nothing less. Do you need more supply? Then at this very moment, be done with your lacking image of yourself and start investing all your energy into the condition of plenty.
Do not be afraid to give from where you are. You have access to unlimited energy (talent) that can be translated into any condition you desire. Invest all your energy into what you desire and more energy will be given you in the form of new ideas, new enthusiasm, and new opportunities. Don’t wear yourself out looking for results. Fill your life right where you are with an absolute commitment to your desire, and it will be yours.
