“Again, it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants and entrusted his property to them.  To one he gave five talents of money, to another two talents, and to another one talent, each according to his ability. Then he went on his journey.  The man who had received the five talents went at once and put his money to work and gained five more.  So also, the one with the two talents gained two more.  But the man who had received the one talent went off, dug a hole in the ground and hid his master’s money.  (Matthew 25:14-18)

Talents, in this story, are a weight of money or precious material like gold or silver.  And according to this parable, God has entrusted us with precious things that He wants us to use to bless people and for His glory.  Of course we all are born with natural talents and abilities, like doing math well or being a good dancer or…

But by far the most valuable things we have been entrusted with are His Spirit  and His Truth.  What an amazing adventure it is to be led by the SPIRIT of the Living God — and to share His eternal TRUTH with those who so desperately need to hear it!
