This is the first examination in what is commonly called the “parable of the talents.” In this instructive story, Jesus tells a great deal about stewardship and money management. This introductory sentence actually has a lot to say in very few words (typical of Jesus):
Our “job” is to utilize the Lord’s possessions entrusted in our care in such a way that His purposes will be furthered. We are working in partnership with the Lord in temporal, tangible aspects as well as the eternal, spiritual realm.
