07 Nov Matthew 25:16-18

16 Immediately the one who had received the five talents went and traded with them, and gained five more talents. 17 In the same manner the one who had received the two talents gained two more. 18 But he who received the one talent went away, and dug a hole in the ground and hid his master’s money.

The first man went and worked, used his talents and doubled them, as did the second man. The last man decided the resources were not his; therefore, he decided to bury the money. God has entrusted each of us with special gifts and talents. Instead of comparing the gifts or talents we have to others, we must take what we’ve been given and perfect it. We do that by honoring those gifts and talents and making sure they do not go to waste. Whatever talent or gifts God has given you, make the most of it and be thankful for what you’ve been given.
