Matthew 25:14-15 EVS
14 “For it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants and entrusted to them his property. 15 To one he gave five talents, to another two, to another one, to each according to his ability. Then he went away.
The Greek word for “talents” (τάλαντον )implies the weight or value of something. We each are given something very valuable by the Lord - life itself. We are a unique mix of characteristics and abilities, but the grace of opportunity is the same for all. The outcomes may differ, but each will be rewarded with “well done my faithful servant” when we give what we have to Him.
How we use this gift is left to us. One day we will meet with Him and give an account.
