All About GOD

All About GOD - Growing Relationships with Jesus and Others

Matthew 25:14-30 King James Version (KJV)

14 For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods.

15 And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey.

16 Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents.

17 And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two.

18 But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his lord's money.

19 After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them.

20 And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more.

21 His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

22 He also that had received two talents came and said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside them.

23 His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

24 Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed:

25 And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine.

26 His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed:

27 Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury.

28 Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents.

29 For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath.

30 And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

 

I’m not an English Person so I read the NIV or New International Version to see the meaning of other verses but I recommend the KJV because its has deep using of words and old and I was more convince.

The Trinity and The Use of Count 3

14 For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods.

It compared that I interpret it as like “God” gives us life or the authority to Use this World of Us, for Us to prepare for the Kingdom of Heaven

Just like those 3 servants who entrusted with gold or materials and after that, … I don’t know to observe or to know or to test the 3 servants by their Lord. Then “WE” must be Useful or Productive for the “God or Lord” in many WAYS especially like “Love” and others for us  to be in the Kingdom of Heaven

Feel free to comment all are welcome positive and negative …

Hi Raven,

This is a parable of the talents, 'talent' indicates a natural ability (given by God).  It means.. 'How did we use our natural talents, responsibilities and gifts for God's Glory'?  We are rewarded based on our faithfulness to use the gifts God gives us.  Don't worry about the results of your efforts, but rather your faithfulness. Our faithfulness proves that we believe and trust in God.  The 3rd man who hid his talent showed by his actions that he did not know the Lord.  He didn't understand God's mercy, Grace, Love, Long-suffering and Forgiveness, instead he believed God to be a hard man, so he hid his talent in the ground, he was not faithful.  He did not trust God.  

Everything we have is given to us by God.  We are stewards of the things He gives us, not owners.  God is the owner.  Do we see ourselves as stewards or owners?  The difference is, a steward knows that he or she is to take care of the things God has given him or her.  They are to be nurtured and allowed to grow for God's Glory and purposes.  A steward also knows that he or she can go to the Owner and ask for help.   We all receive different amounts to nurture.  God decides.  When Jesus returns we are each accountable to Him for how we handled our talents, responsibilities etc...  

We can see by this parable that our view of God will direct our choices.  Do we see God as a hard man with unfair and unrealistic expectations, or do we see Him as a loving Father who loves us and will empower us to do the right things as we pray and trust in Him?   God knows we need Him, and wants us to call on Him for help all of the time.  He is always ready to strengthen us so we will do the right thing.
