God gives us gifts, abilities and talents to use in order to prosper in this life. In the parable of the talents, the one given 10 talents and the one given 5 talents both doubled what they were given. However, the servant that was given one talent buried it and did not increase the Masters wealth. He did not even put the money in the bank to gain interest. God referred to that man as wicked. As a result, God gave the one talent to the one who had 10 talents. Therefore those who have much and reap a reward, receive more and those that have little, what little they have will be taken away from them.
Are we being a good steward of God’s Kingdom? Realise that everything belongs to God. Are we using our talents to glorify Him? Most assuredly, should we put our faith in God and exercise our gifts, God will be well pleased with us and we will reap a reward. So never stop using your talents. Should you persevere, there is great reward both in this life and in eternity. Enjoy this message.
