What Did You Do With Your Talent?



I was recently reminded of the biblical parable of the Talents. Yes, I’ve heard the story many times before; but this time it really stood out to me. It made me ask myself what did and am I doing with my talent?
So in the parable, three servants were given an unequal portion of money.  The two with the most money went out and “traded”, and doubled their money.  The one that had the least money went and literally buried his money, because he was “afraid”.  When their master came back he was very pleased with the two that had doubled their money, but angry with the one that had buried his (Matthew 25:14-30). 
Wow!  Now the interesting thing is the parable is about money, but when I heard this story instantly I saw how it not only applied to the way that I looked at money; but also the way that I handle my gifts and talents.  So my short meditative thought for you today is are you burying your money, gifts, talents, or strengths; or are you utilizing them to multiply your return?  Just a question.
As always, I thank you for stopping by, and I wish you a safe and wonderful day!
