Luke 13:7; “then he said to the keeper of his vineyard, ‘look, for three years I have come seeking fruit on this fig tree and find none. Cut it down; why does it use up ground?’” (emphasis added)
You have time to cultivate your gifts and harness them to produce positive results to benefit others. Imagine, the fig tree gets what it needs from the earth, air, rain but it produces fruit instead; the tree does not eat of the fruit does it? This is why our gifts don’t work for us when we turn the focus on ourselves. The principle is set, live for others, and then you will live a truly fulfilling and happy life.
It is never too late to become of value, seeing that everyone has a latent form within but only those who have gone on the discovery journey are able to fully take advantage and use it to benefit majority of the people around them and beyond. In case you were wondering, this confers a huge responsibility on us all; otherwise, we will each lose our estate.
Why are you using up other people’s opportunity when you are not being productive? It is only a matter of time before you are given the booth, so that someone more productive than you are will be given the opportunity to be a source of encouragement to people around.
There is a highway connecting productivity in seemingly little tasks and huge responsibilities. While we humans measure productivity in quantity (amount), God measures in quality (percentage). It does not matter if all you can do is talk, sing, dance, run, swim, write, as long as you do it with all your heart and strength and do not hold back, you will get the pass mark—FRUITFUL.
