Question and answer
Matthew 25:14-29 the parable of the bags of gold...what does this mean
the Bags of Gold Parable in Mathew 25 14:29 where a man preparing to go on a journey called his servants together and entrusted his wealth to them. [ To the first man he gave five bags of gold, to the second, two bags, and to third man one bag, each according to his ability. When the master of the servants returned, the first man who had received five bags of gold had put the five bags of gold
to work and gained five more bags. The first man delivered ten bags of gold to his master. His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’ The second man with two bags of gold did the same and increased the two bags of gold and delivered to his master four bags. His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’ Then the third man who had received one bag of gold came. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘I knew that you are a hard man, harvesting where you have not sown and gathering where you have not scattered seed. So I was afraid and went out and hid your gold in the ground. See, here is what belongs to you.’ His master replied, ‘You wicked, lazy servant! So you knew that I harvest where I have not sown and gather where I have not scattered seed? Well then, you should have put my money on deposit with the bankers, so that when I returned I would have received it back with interest. I consider every individual that has committed their life to serving Jesus Christ to be a modern day disciple of Jesus. As a disciple myself, the above parable does not sound very favorable for those that choose to do nothing but wait for Jesus to return. It would be better to at least put forth the effort to do something even if that something fails. At least a failed effort is better than no effort at all. ]
