I recently came across some people having a conversation about somebody who has (in my opinion) a God given platform to speak to millions of people every day. Typically it was a conversation around how in their “expert” opinion, this person was shallow and didn’t know enough about what he supposedly represents. It always cracks me up when I see people with little or no results pontificating about someone who has achieved more than these “experts”) could ever dream about with all their knowledge!
The truth in many ways concerning this preacher in question, is that there is not a lot of substance in what they preach. But here is another amazing truth: this guys and his team ARE WORKING THE LITTLE THEY HAVE!! They are WORKING IT with everything they have! The thing that annoys these “experts” is that the more they criticize this dude, the more his platform expands.
A lot of times, life is not about how much you know, it about what you do with what you know! Jesus’ parable of the talents in Matthew 25:14-30 highlights this point. The “experts” are like the 5 talent guy, but instead of working what they have like the guy in the parable does, they are busy analysing how little the gift of the 2 talent guy is. Meanwhile the 2 talent guy is busy WORKING HIS 2 TALENTS!!
Don’t pay attention to those who think little of your gift. Don’t mind those who think you don’t qualify because of something in your past, your education, your background, your style, your weaknesses or even your personality. Yield the little you know to the Grace of God. You might be the least in your field, but God’s grace can empower you to “Labour more than them all” (1 Corinthians 15:10).
You were not called for the audience of the “experts”. God called you to a life lived for the AUDIENCE OF ONE (Jesus). The “Little” you have been given is what makes your life worth it.
DON’T MIND THE “EXPERTS”. WORK YOUR “LITTLE” GIFT!!
