«After a long time the lord of those servants came and settled accounts with them» (Mathew, 25:19).Some institutions require annual, monthly or weekly accounts. It is good because accountability helps keep things in order. Taxing authorities require monthly reports, and that forces us to keep our books in order. Possibly, if there hadn’t been such requirements, most of people would have their finances in a mess. Reports and the awareness of the fact, that you will have to give an account, help a person ‘to stay in shape’. The truth is that you will have to give an account for the talents and gifts God has given you.The parable we have been exploring, to shows us that after giving out the talents, the Master was away for a long time. And at that time there were people who thought that in the Master’s absence they could do anything they want to. But it is important to remember that there comes a day for every one of us when we will have to give an account for what we have done with our talents and gifts.What have you been doing with your life? How do you spend your time? What do you do with your properties? What have you been doing with the talents and mental facilities that God has entrusted you? How have you been participating in the building of the Kingdom of God? Have you been investing yourself and your possessions into the building of God’s Kingdom? What have you been doing with yourself?Time will reveal who is doing what, what you have been doing and how you’ve been living. It is very important, but it is also scary. It makes us think on what we are really doing in this life. Those who invest themselves into God’s Kingdom have nothing to worry about or fear. It is one of the reasons why we continually ask and call people to serve the Lord in our churches. Serve the Lord! Do something to build the Kingdom of God! I would really like for each person in this church to multiply the talents God has given him or her.
«So he who had received five talents came and brought five other talents, saying, „Lord, you delivered to me five talents; look, I have gained five more talents besides them.” His lord said to him, „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 your lord» (Mathew, 25:20-21).I would be really happy if every person in our church could hear from God: “Well done, good and faithful servant!”Every one of us is a carrier of God’s gifts, and it is our choice whether we multiply them or bury them.May God help you to multiply God given talents by the Spirit of God and use them for God’s Kingdom!Till tomorrow!Pastor Rufus Ajiboye
