We sometimes spend too much wasted time concerned with what we are unable to do, instead of looking at the things we CAN do. In at least two separate incidents, Jesus taught the importance of using what we have. He pointed out to the apostles how much “more” the poor widow with two coins gave in comparison with those who were giving of their surplus (Luke 21:1-4). The second incident occurred when a woman “anointed” Jesus’ head with an alabaster vial of expensive perfume, “doing a good deed to Me [Christ]”. This act was to be spoken in memory of her wherever the gospel was preached [the whole world] (Mt. 26:6-13). Let’s be sure we are using the talents with which the Lord has blessed us. Little is much when God is in it!
