Return on Investment
By Jayson Tucker
Matthew chapter 25
Jesus continues to discuss what the kingdom of heaven is with the disciples. He uses the parable of the talents for this illustration.
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.
Matthew 25:19-21 KJV
God expects a return on his investment. In this parable there are three servants. One recieved only one talent and went and hid it instead of growing it. This servant is very similar to those who get saved but then don’t share that gift with others. Instead of helping to lead others to Christ they just bury it within themselves. Whether you blessed with five talents, two talents, or one God is waiting for you to grow his investment. Be profitable.
Have a great day.
