In Matthew 25:14-30 Jesus taught the parable of the talents. Don't confine your understanding of this teaching to only money (which is what the talent in the parable was). The principle He was teaching us was that any blessing or ability He gives us is to USED in His service. He didn't give it to us for our pleasure, but rather entrusted it to us as His servants, no matter what it is. They are given to us, His servants, to be USED in service to Him in His kingdom.

Every one of us who has heard His plan of salvation has been given the pearl of greatest price, the greatest wealth. Matthew 13:45,46 If we share it with others, His kingdom increases as souls are saved (just like His wealth with the talent parable) and we have been faithful. If we share His plan of salvation with as many as possible, we reap the 100-fold increase and you may note that not only did our Master say He was pleased with this servant, but He took what the first servant had, which he had done nothing with, and gave it to this servant!

Make use of this day the Lord has given us - be a worthy servant! Be rich in good works and serve faithfully that you might one day hear Him tell you, "Well done thou good and faithful servant! Enter in..." 1 Timothy 6:18; Matthew 25:20-22 Isn't that what it's all about? Nothing else matters in the end. He loved you so much that He sent someone to you to share the gospel that you might be saved...He also loves everyone else that much and when you gave Him your life, you made yourself His servant, His ambassador on earth. 1 Corinthians 4:1; 2 Corinthians 5:20 We are His voice, His hands and His feet. In what bazaar imagination does a "servant/slave" take his leisure doing exactly what he wants every moment of every day, ignoring His master's commands and expects all to be well? Christianity is ACTION not sitting!

  • "All the nations will be gathered before Him; and He will separate them from one another, as the shepherd separates the sheep from the goats; and He will put the sheep on His right, and the goats on the left. Then the King will say to those on His right, 'Come, you who are blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world." Matthew 25:32-34
One last thought - people seem to think of the parable of the talents as a "nice suggestion" from Jesus, but not terribly serious. I'd like to point out that the parable is Matthew 25:14-30 and it is IMMEDIATELY followed by it's application in verses 31-46...which is Jesus describing the Day of Judgment and the parting of the sheep and goats, one to hear "Well done...enter in..." and the other:
  • "Depart from Me, accursed ones, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels" Matthew 25:41
