Be Thou Resourceful

You must learn to be resourceful with what little you have been given. It is up to you to make the best use of your time, energy, and available resources. If you allow yourself to be discouraged by a perceived lack of resources, you will never accomplish anything. Resourcefulness breeds resilience and ingenuity, enabling you to overcome obstacles and seize opportunities. Remember, even small steps can lead to significant progress. By adopting a resourceful mindset, you empower yourself to thrive in any situation. You might not always have everything you think you need. So, in every situation, be thou resourceful.

In business, resourcefulness often leads to innovative solutions and breakthroughs. Take the story of Airbnb founders, who, unable to afford rent, turned their living space into a makeshift bed and breakfast. This creative use of their resources eventually evolved into a billion-dollar business. Consider a nonprofit negotiating with a church for venue use due to budget constraints, or a business owner hiring an experienced professional for a few hours per week instead of paying their full rate. It might be true that you do not have everything you need, but are you making the best use of your time, energy, and every resource and relationship at your disposal.

The master chastised and punished his wicked servant for not being resourceful. Rather than utilizing his single talent, he chose to play it safe. His master was having none of it, “‭Then you ought to have invested my money with the bankers, and at my coming I should have received what was my own with interest” (‭‭Matthew‬ ‭25:27‬). If you want to work and move forward, you will always find a way. If you are not truly interested in working, you will find an excuse to stop. You must reflect on whether you truly want to achieve the goals you claim to have. Be thou resourceful.
