|The Parable of the Talents|
<< Back to
Watch ! ! !
One day a certain wealthy man called his servants and said to them,
"I am going on a journey, and you will be looking after my property."
To one of the servants the master gave five talents.
A "Talent" was a measure of silver weighing several kilograms.
That was a huge sack of silver! So you understand, five talents was
a real fortune. To another servant the master gave two talents, and to another one talent. Each servant received according to his ability.
The servant who received 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 third servant went off, dug a hole in the ground and hid his master's money.
After a long time the master of those servants returned and settled accounts with his servants. The man who received five talents came to him and said, "Master, you entrusted me with five talents.
See, I have gained five more."
His master replied, "Well done, good and faithful servant! You were faithful with a few things; so I will gladly put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master's happiness!"
The second man came and put four sacks before his master.
"Master! Here is what I have earned. You entrusted me with two talents, I have gained two more. Here, take it." His master replied, "Well done, good and faithful servant! You were faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master's happiness!"
Then the man who received one talent came. "My master! I knew that you are a hard man. So I was afraid and went out and hid your talent in the ground. See, here is what belongs to you." "You wicked, lazy servant!" cried the master angrily. "Did I give you the talent so that you would dig a hole and put it in the ground? You should have put my money on deposit, so that when I returned I would have received it back with interest. Take the talent from him and give it to the one who has ten talents!"
