And to one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one, to each according to his own ability; and immediately he went on a journey. Then he who had received the five talents went and traded with them, and made another five talents. And likewise he who had received two gained two more also. But he who had received one went and dug in the ground, and hid his lord’s money. After a long time the lord of those servants came and settled accounts with them.
-Jesus explained the kingdom of heaven using the parable of the talents. The parable teaches on work & responsibility, where everyone is given gifts/ talents according to their ability. Risk & reward is viewed as a test of faith where the risk takers doubled their minas while the risk averse never invested. The master judged the servants according to their diligence where the first two were rewarded while the last one was punished. Proper investment of time & resources is tested where God guides us in the right direction.
We bless You Abba Father for what You have bestowed upon us. Help us to invest our time & resources wisely that we may be fruitful in our work. Give us direction of purpose that we may walk in Your way. Amen
