Or Bible story of this term is The parable of the Talents. In this parable, Jesus wanted to teach the people not to waste their God given talents and abilities. In the story, Jesus talked about a really rich master who gave 3 of his servants differing amounts of money to take care of while he was away. The first servant was given the most and he worked hard and doubled the money. The second servant was given a little less but he also worked hard and doubled the money. The third servant was given the least and he did nothing with the money. In fact, he just dug a hole and hid it. When the rich master returned, he was so proud of the first two servants for using the money to make more money. But, he was angry at the third servant who did nothing. Here’s the point, God gives each of us talents and abilities and he wants us to use them. He wants us to work hard to get better at those things. But, more importantly, he wants us to use them to help others and to honor him.
