 “Well done, my good and faithful servant. Since you have been faithful in small matters, I will give you great responsibilities.”-   MATTHEW 25:21  God expects us to nurture and develop the gifts He has given us and then generously return a portion with increase. He doesn’t want us to waste or hoard the gifts He has given us; He expects us to grow our gifts, use them wisely and be generous with them. Unfortunately, many of us are not generous in proportion to all that God has given us.
