Taking the easiest route in life maybe the most conservative, and yet the most unfulfilling. Purpose and meaning are often times manifested within the realm of chaos when you trail off the path of security. In this realm is where the potential for success lies and where order can be created. Only in this realm can we reach our full potential as the chaos forces us either grow and excel or drift back onto the path most known. Jesus’s parable about the talents sheds light on this issue as each person was given a number of talents and then sent out into the world or “chaos” to grow their talents. All of them succeeded except one, that is the one that hid them away in fear and took the easiest route possible. Go off the beaten path and see what potential God has put within you.
