The kingdom of Heaven will be as when a man goes on a journey, who called his servants and entrusted to them his property.
~ Matthew 25:14
The things that we have — our intellect, our wealth, our talents, our health, our families — we must not mistake as our fruits. They are NOT our fruits. These are our gifts. Our blessings from God. Property entrusted to us. We are mere stewards of these gifts.
Now after a long time, the master of those servants came and settled accounts with them.
~ Matthew 25:19
At the end of the day, we will face God, and He will ask us what we have done with the talents and gifts given to us.
What are we going to answer Him? Did we use His gifts for His kingdom, or have we buried them in the ground like the wicked servant?
