STEWARDSHIP: We Are Accountable To God For Our Management Of Everything He Has Entrusted To Us Here On Earth

The More He Gives To Us, The More He Requires From Us

             MATTHEW 25:14-30 (KJV) "The Parable Of The Talents"
                             NOTE: A "talent" was a sum of money
                             equal to about two years wages.
                                          
             14
                    For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into
                    a far country, who called his own servants, and
                    delivered unto them his goods.
             15
                    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.
             16
                    Then he that had received the five talents went and
                    traded with the same, and made them other five
                    talents.
             17
                    And likewise he that had received two, he also gained
                    other two.
             18
                    But he that had received one went and digged in the
                    earth, and hid his lord's money.
             19
                    After a long time the lord of those servants cometh,
                    and reckoneth with them.
             20
                    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.
             21
                    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.
             22
                    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.
             23
                    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.
             24
                    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, and gathering where
                    thou hast not strawed:
             25
                    And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the
                    earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine.
             26
                    His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and
                    slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I
                    sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed:
             27
                    Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the
                    exchangers, and then at my coming I should have
                    received mine own with usury.
             28
                    Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto
                    him which hath ten talents.
             29
                    For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he
                    shall have abundance: but from him that hath not
                    shall be taken away even that which he hath.
             30
                    And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer
                    darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of
                    teeth.

                          "For unto whomsoever much is given, of him
                           shall be much required:" (Luke 12:48b KJV)
