(Mt. 25:14-31, Luke 19:11-28)
This episode is about a parable, whose characters received money from their master and were obliged to use it for profit. Those who earned extra money received praise, while those who earned nothing, fearing that they would lose their money, were punished. The same is true for spiritual life. Christians must use their gifts received from God and be useful to other people, and when they don’t do so, they should remember that this parable was told for them.
