When he that had received the five talents
went and traded with the same, and made
them other five talents. And likewise he
that had received two, he also gained other two.
God gives you talents, or money or resources, to double it. That is the main reason why He gives it to you. If you are not doubling your money, or increasing yourself, in time everyone will discover what kind of servant you are, including yourself. But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his lord’s money. Matthew 25:18
This man hid his lord’s money. Hiding your talent will not generate wealth for you. You have to put it (your talent) to work.
After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them. 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.
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. 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. 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.
Notice something here, the individuals who doubled their money, or gained more talents, he said to them “well done good and faithful servant.” Their compliment of “well done” had nothing to do with holiness. In most church circles we put too much emphasis on the wrong things. We major in the things that God is not continuously harping on.
In the scripture, when the children of Israel got judged, it was not a holiness problem they had to deal with, it was a hunger problem. What do you have an appetite for? If you are not greedy for it, you do not get it. … thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord. 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,…v.23,24.
