Hmmm, Should I Use or Bury My Talent?

Ever hear the story of the Talents? ~ A man going on a journey, called his servants and entrusted to them his property. To one he gave five talents (silver coins), to another two, to another one, to each according to his ability. Then he went away.

He who had received the five talents went at once and traded with them, and he made five talents more. So also he who had the two talents made two talents more. But he who had received the one talent went and dug in the ground and hid his master’s money.

Now after a long time the master of those servants came and settled accounts with them. He who had received the five talents came forward, bringing five talents more, saying, ‘Master, you delivered to me five talents; here, I have made five talents more.’ His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.’

And he who had the two talents came forward, saying, ‘Master, you delivered to me two talents; here, I have made two talents more.’ His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.’

He who had received the one talent came forward, saying, ‘Master, I knew you to be a hard man, so I was afraid, and I went and hid your talent in the ground. Here, you have what is yours.’ But his master answered him, ‘You wicked and slothful servant! You ought to have invested my money with the bankers, and at my coming I should have received what was my own with interest.

So take the talent from him and give it to him who has the ten talents. For to everyone who has will more be given, and he will have an abundance. But from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away. And cast the worthless servant into the outer darkness. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’

Does this mean anything to you?

For me, this speaks to me to use my talents, my abilities in life, and not hide them away. Not waste them.

I have been a shy person in my life. To hide is to lose all. To use my abilities is to grow, personally, financially, and spiritually. I choose growth and contribution! To help others grow too! To do what nature does: grow and multiply. Then I dance with the rhythm of Life!

So let’s serve life, do what we’re good at, learn new things, lift others along our way.
