More or less?

Re: Verse reading Deuteronomy 8:10-18; Matthew 25:14-30 (day six) 
“For to everyone who has, more shall be given. . .but from the one who does not have, even what he does have shall be taken away.” (Matthew 25:29)
New Testament scholars call it “the law of spiritual capital”.  If we have a job (and do it), we will be offered more jobs.  If we have a gift (and use it), more opportunities will come.  It is no conspiracy that 80% of the work is always done by 20% of the people.  Jesus says that this is just the way things work!  The reverse is true for those who do not have jobs (almost certainly because they have ignored or refused the obvious opportunities. . .”I am busy”, “I don’t feel qualified”) or if we do not do the job already ours then, eventually, the opportunities will stop coming.  God-given gifts atrophy when unused. God does not waste grace.  Which will it be for you?  More or less?
