I spent a little extra time with the Parable of the Ten Minas today, reading it from several different versions to see the words used by the nobleman in connection with the funds he was giving his servants. What I found were phrases like: engage in business, invest this, do work with. When the nobleman returned and sought out an account from his servants, only two used the funds they were given well, and they were both rewarded for their diligence for how they managed what they had been given.
Do you consider the things you have (think broader than simply money) as coming from God and being entrusted to you? What are you doing to invest, manage and use what God has given you for His kingdom? Tami
