"Whoever has will be given more, and they will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them." - Jesus, Matthew 13:12
We need to spend TIME to nuture our gifts and talents. TIME to be the best in school; on the job; in our family lives; in our spiritual lives, etc. TIME to personally study, learn, improve, meditate, etc.
Instead of spending 8 hours watching sports or soap operas each week, why not slash it to 4 or 2? Instead of going to Church, Temple or Mosque everyday, why not reduce it to once or twice weekly? Some people are doing poorly and hoping for a "miracle" WITHOUT putting in the WORK required.
God will not give you any MIRACLE! He will give it to those who PRAY and put in the WORK required. When you do your part, then you are making use of "what you have". As a result, God will give MORE to you. But if you give all kinds of excuses and fail to discipline yourself with regards to self-improvement, then even the little you have shall be taken away from you. No amount of prayers, anointing oil, etc shall bring "the miracle". FAITH without WORK is dead!
"Whoever has will be given more, and they will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them."
