The Parable of the Talents

While many people look at the Parable of The Talents as a parable that deals with bad stewardship of money, it is much more than that. This famous parable has much to do with how a servant chooses to utilize his time. I would like to look at this parable from different perspectives so that you can gain a better understanding of how to best use your time in life, and make the investments in areas that will yield the greatest return for you.  Remember again, that time and investments are words that can be used interchangeably.


For the kingdom of heaven is as a man traveling into a far country, who called his own

servants, and delivered unto them his goods.

And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey.

Matthew 25:14-15


In verse 14, we begin to see that a man that went to a far country and delivered unto them his goods. Every person on earth has been given the good called time. Also, every human has been given goods, a talent, and ability. God only works with you according to your ability. You must recognize that truth.  God will never give you more than you are able to handle. This is why people really have no need to complain in life about being overloaded with burdens that they cannot handle. If you have a weight on your shoulders, God has put within you an ability to be able to overcome each and every situation. God only gives to you that which you can bare.
