In this week's Gospel (Mathew 25: 14-30), Jesus is talking to his disciples and he brought up a parable where there is a master who gave talents to their servants. One servant received five talents, the other two talents, and the last one received one talent. He asked them to take care of his possessions. The first servant took the talents and made five more of them, the second did the same, he duplicated the number of talents the master gave to him. They both knew that the boss was going to come back. However, the third servant did nothing to make more talents, he buried them. The Master came back and settled accounts with the servants. He was grateful for what the first and second servants made with the talents. But when the third one said he did nothing, the master was disappointed with the lazy servant.
Jesus used this metaphor trying to explain that these talents are God’s word. God trusted in us with something precious and we have to spread the word to other people. We aren't supposed to keep and bury the lesson, we need more people to know and to be saved by God. This is the promise God gave to us, and he trusts in us as the master did with the servants. I think a lot of people identify with the lazy servant because he doesn’t listen to the God’s word as he should. We are here on Earth with a mission. We have to stop being the lazy servant and do what the other servants did: multiply the talents given by the master, so we need to do the same with what God says and gives to us.
