                Matthew 25 : 20-30 Gods expectation to us<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

 

20The man who had received the five talents brought the other five. 'Master,' he said, 'you entrusted me with five talents. See, I have gained five more.'

 21"His master replied, 'Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master's happiness!'
 22"The man with the two talents also came. 'Master,' he said, 'you entrusted me with two talents; see, I have gained two more.'
 23"His master replied, 'Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master's happiness!'
 24"Then the man who had received the one talent came. 'Master,' he said, 'I knew that you are a hard man, harvesting where you have not sown and gathering where you have not scattered seed. 25So I was afraid and went out and hid your talent in the ground. See, here is what belongs to you.'
 26"His master replied, 'You wicked, lazy servant! So you knew that I harvest where I have not sown and gather where I have not scattered seed? 27Well then, you should have put my money on deposit with the bankers, so that when I returned I would have received it back with interest.
 28" 'Take the talent from him and give it to the one who has the ten talents. 29For everyone who has will be given more, and he will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken from him. 30And throw that worthless servant outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Before this parable of text, there is the parable of five wise brides and other five foolish brides. Five wise brides were awake and they joined the wedding feast. But rest of them couldnt join the wedding feast. When they went out to buy lamp oil, bridegrooms came and the door was closed.        

 

Eventually, half of them were chosen and the others were abandoned. In church, we often hear of salvation. But we should know that if we are saved, there will be people who are not saved. If everyone is saved, actually salvation is non sense. Thus, we have to waken to be saved.

 

And from the parable of today, we come to know how we should live our life. As you know, we have heard of this story very often. But there is something we have to see deeply. It is this; Gods demand and standard are quietly different from ours. When we think something is very good, it can be very bad in Gods eyes. Therefore, the sincere believer is the person who obeys Gods standard and demand.

 

In this text, one rich man gave his money to his servants. One received 5 talents, the other received 2 talents and the third received 1 talent. And the people who got 5 and 2 talent put their money into work and made two times of the money. But the one who received 1 talent just buried the money. And after long time, the master came back. And there was the time of accounting. This is important. People who earned money knew that there would be the time of accounting. To us, accounting means the Judgment of God. And the master punished the one who buried money. He never told his servants that they should make money with their portion. But two wise servants knew what their master would do. This is very important in our life of faith. Knowing the intention of God is the most important thing and also very effective. If we dont know Gods intention, we can not please God.

 

Maybe the two wise servants would risk the loss of money. Even in our life of faith, many things are not clear, but if we try to something according to Gods intentions, God helps us. If we try to serve God, God makes us able. Surely all of us have the talents which were given by God. Someone sings well, someone dances well, someone decorates well. Maybe some talents look bigger or more important. But see the verse of 23. Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Many talents or a few talents, the number or different private ability is not important. The point is being faithful to even a very small thing which was given by God.

Everybody has different talents but God sees how we are faithful to develop our
 
talent. Thus we dont have to worry about the success in that process. God sees our
 
heart.  In humane thought maybe the servant who received 1 talent is right. But as I
 
said, our salvation can come true while we notice Gods intention and demand on us.
 
While trying to develop our talent, Gods joyful because of you. I wish such blessing
 
will be with you all through your life.
