“Then the man who had received one bag of gold came. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘I knew that you are a hard man, harvesting where you have not sown and gathering where you have not scattered seed. 25 So I was afraid and went out and hid your gold in the ground. See, here is what belongs to you.’ Mathew 25:24-25

The story of these three servants is something we can Identify ourselves with. We live and work with people with different talents, strength and responsibilities. In our place of work, church and homes , we can testify that not everyone has the same responsibilities, some have more than others. This is due to a lot of factors and differences; maturity, knowledge, experience, age, strengths, interest and abilities.

Just like the rich master in the parable who knew the strength and attitude of his servants, God, our maker and father knows us all. He formed us and knew what went into our making. He had a purpose in mind when he made you.

For every good works we have been made for( Ephesians 2:10), we will give account to God just like the three servants did. God is expecting us to work with what he has given us to produce profit or results.

To be faithful servants, we must not be like the third servant who was given a bag of gold. He thought that the only good thing he could do with the bag of gold is to hide it. If only he had thought like the others and had worked with it, he would’ve earned more with it.

Most at times we look at how small our platform or work is, look down at it and hide it. What we see as small may be something big and all we need to do is to put it to work.

Do not allow fear take over you just as it took over the servant. He was afraid of the master and so he hid it. Fear can make us hide our gifts and stop us from doing great. Step into power which is made available to you through Christ and put your gifts to work. Which ever responsibility given to you in church and any where you find yourself, do your best at it.

Like the three servants, you will account for every gift and even the life you live.
