A master was leaving house for travel, and before he leaves, he entrust his properties to his 3 servants. According to the abilities of each man, one servant received 5 bags of gold (talents), the second servant received 2 bags, and the third servant received one bag. The bags of money was a significant amount of money.
The servants who received 5 and 2 bags immediately put the bags at work to gain profits. The third servant, on the other hand, dug a hole in the ground and hid his master's gold.
"Look master, the bag of gold is still here as it is."
Upon returning home after a long absence, the master asks his three servants for an account of the bags of gold he entrusted to them. He evaluates them according to how faithful each was in making wise investments of his goods to obtain a profit.
The first servant, who received 5 bags of gold, gained another 5 more bags of gold. The master said to him: "Well done, good and faithful servant."
The second servant, who received 2 bags of gold, gained another 2 more bags of gold. The master said to him: "Well done, good and faithful servant."
The third servant, given one bag of gold, told his master that he was afraid to loss his hard earned money, thus he hid them under the ground. "Look master, the bag of gold is still here as it is." The meaning of talent extends beyond just financial investment. Talents also refers to gifts, wealth, ability, skill, opportunity, and all of us are born with (given) different talents. Don’t be lazy and keep your talent in the closet, put it to good use and multiply them for a greater purpose in the age to come.
What happens if you leaves something as it is for a long time? Stagnancy is as good as dead. It is never a better time than today to take stock of life and ask how are you doing with what you have been given. If you can be faithful to few things, much more shall be given to you in abundance.
