Matthew'25:14 - 30!begins!with,!“For!the!kingdom!of!heaven!is!like!a!man!traveling!to!a!far!
country,!which!called!his!own!servants!and!delivered!his!goods!to!them.”!!The!verses!continue!on!to!
describe!how!the!man!gave!portions!of!his!goods ! (talents) !to!each!of!his!servants! ‘according!to!his!
own ! ability’.!Later!in!the!parable,!we!see!what! the!reward!was!for!each!of!the!servants’!good!work!
with!what!was!entrusted!to!them.! ‘Talents’!in!this!parable,!is!actually!talking!about!a!5000G day!wage.!
CEC/!Daniel!Academy! G! !
As!I!considered!this,!I!discovered!that!the!amount!of!money!he!gave!was!over!a!13!years!wage,!and!he!
I!minister!to!the!children!weekly!with!
teachings,!prayer!and!worship.!I!am!also!
developing!our!future!academy!for!
students!within!the!prayer!movement. !
didn’t!just!give!one!talent.!He!gave!one!servant!five!talents G ! now!that’s!a!lot! of!money!to!have!
stewardship!over. !
!
Recently,!I!have!been!on!a!journey!with!the!Lord!about!being!a!good!steward,! not!only!of!
my!finances!but!also!my!time,!and!energy.!This!parable!points!to!the!way!the!kingdom!of!God!operates!
in!respect!to!that!which!God!gives!us.!It!also!makes!clear!that!the!money!given!each!servant!was!not!
their!own!but!their!masters.!I!began!medi tating,!and!praying!about!this!parable.!What!the!Lord!has!
shown!me!was!eye!opening!and!I!just!need!to!share!it.!Everything!on!the!earth!belongs!to!the!Lord,!He!
even!owns! us!since!He!created!us,!and!knows!everything!about!us!( Ps.'139 ).!If!God!owns!everythin g,!
and! has!given ! me!the!opportunity!to!make!good!of!what!He!entrusts!me!with,!then!the!question!is,!
how'am'I'being'a'faithful'servant'with'what'is'ultimately'the'Lord’s.'This'is'a'burning'question'in'my'
heart! !! I!do!not!have!it!all!figured!out,!nor!am!I!wa lking!in!the! fullness!of!it!all,!however,!I! now!have!a!
vision!set!before!me.!It!is!a!vision!of!the!kingdom!of!God!and!how!I!can!be!active!within!it.!In!the!end,!
all!I!want!is!for!my!Father!in!heaven!to!say!to!me!these!words ,'“Nissi,'well'done'good'and'faithful'
servant;'you'were'faithful'over'a'few'things,'I'will'make'you'ruler'over'many'things.'Enter'into'the'joy'of'
the'Lord”! (vs.21). !
