Matthew 25:14 and 15

Again, it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants and entrusted his property to them.  To one he gave five talents of money, to another two talents, and to another one talent, each according to his ability.

Here is something I had not noticed before.  The owner gave talents to his servants according to their ability.  So, the one who received five talents had the ability to gain five more.  In the same way, the servant who was given one talent had the ability to increase it for his master.  The talent did not belong to the servant.  It was entrusted to him by the master so the servant could multiply it.

What is the gift or talent God has given us to multiply for His kingdom, His glory?  It doesn’t matter if we have been given one talent or many talents.  God gave them to us, and He knows we have the ability to use it/them, because He even blessed  us with that ability!
