Don't Use It, You Lose It

    A few days ago I was getting ready for the day and I went to get my hair gel but I couldn't find it. I looked everywhere and still couldn't find it. I had that Veggie Tales song stuck in my head. That one that Larry sings about losing his hair brush. But I never actually found it. It had been a couple days since I used it. Then that saying popped in my head. You don't use it, you lose it.
    This is a principle that Christ taught in the Bible with one of his many parables. In the parable of the talents there is a man who had three servants. He gave the first five talents, the second two talents, and the third servant one talent. The first servant went out and using the five talents his master had given him, he earned five more. The second servant did the same and earned two more, doubling what he had. The third servant did not. Afraid of losing the one talent, he buried it. When the three servants reported back to the master he was pleased with the first two but not the third. The master took his one talent away. (Matt 25:13-30)
    Each of us have been given great gifts from Heavenly Father and we should lose them. If we lose those gifts, we can't replace them at Wal-Mart.
