Matthew 25,14-30

Matthew 25 14-30

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 25,14-30

Jesus told his disciples this parable: “A man going on a journey called in his servants and entrusted his possessions to them.
To one he gave five talents; to another, two; to a third, one– to each according to his ability. Then he went away. Immediately
the one who received five talents went and traded with them, and made another five.
Likewise, the one who received two made another two.
But the man who received one went off and dug a hole in the ground and buried his master’s money.
After a long time the master of those servants came back and settled accounts with them.
The one who had received five talents came forward bringing the additional five. He said, ‘Master, you gave me five talents. See, I have made five more.’
His master said to him, ‘Well done, my good and faithful servant. Since you were faithful in small matters, I will give you great responsibilities. Come, share your master’s joy.’
(Then) the one who had received two talents also came forward and said, ‘Master, you gave me two talents. See, I have made two more.’
His master said to him, ‘Well done, my good and faithful servant. Since you were faithful in small matters, I will give you great responsibilities. Come, share your master’s joy.’
Then the one who had received the one talent came forward and said, ‘Master, I knew you were a demanding person, harvesting where you did not plant and gathering where you did not scatter;
so out of fear I went off and buried your talent in the ground. Here it is back.’
His master said to him in reply, ‘You wicked, lazy servant! So you knew that I harvest where I did not plant and gather where I did not scatter?
Should you not then have put my money in the bank so that I could have got it back with interest on my return?
Now then! Take the talent from him and give it to the one with ten.
For to everyone who has, more will be given and he will grow rich; but from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away.
And throw this useless servant into the darkness outside, where there will be wailing and grinding of teeth.’”

Talents are your ticket to heaven

1) He trusted: God entrusts His creation to you. Today, you are also in charge of the happiness of many. God has entrusted the lives of others to your hands: your family, your friends, and your neighbors. Do not look away. You must take charge of your responsibilities. A Christian must take care of the work of God, in nature and every person who is by his side.

2) Talents: God gives talents to each one according to their ability. Stop looking at what the others have or what they do. Don’t compare yourself to anyone. You have your own talents and you have a mission that requires an investment; that investment is going to win souls for God. Use the gifts God has given you to grow, gain interest, and to produce. The gift is not meant to be kept or buried. In life, things are not to be maintained, they are to be invested. Invest your talents: your time, your charisma, your presence in the other, etc.

3) Wicked and lazy:
Do not fall into spiritual laziness; that laziness where you don’t want to do anything, and you don’t even let others do things. This evil will lead you to be negative and pessimistic. Do not fall into that vicious circle where you prevent others’ successes just because you, yourself are lazy and don’t make an effort.

Today you and I have to invest, we have to keep going; keep on rowing the boat. There are people who depend on us. Help me and I will help you. Let’s help each other so we have a surplus in heaven… because, remember, heaven is our goal !
God bless you in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
