Subject: May 31st — Daily Devotional by Watchman Nee

But his lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, . . . thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the bankers, and at my coming I should have received back mine own with interest. Matthew 25:26-27.

This servant's poor showing is attributed in the parable entirely to his laziness. D. L. Moody once said that it is hard for a lazy person to be saved. We can at least say that no lazy person will receive a reward. Let us not allow our gift to remain idle because it is small. Let us not wait for a more convenient or more promising time to serve.

"Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the bankers"—Gift 'may' be distributed to others for trading. We should contact one or more people. However little our gift 'may' be, it must not go unused. Why not at least put it to use to save one soul, help one life, or comfort one person?
