11 Now while they were listening to these things, Jesus went on to tell a parable, because He was near Jerusalem and they thought that the kingdom of God was going to appear immediately.

12 So He said, “A nobleman went to a distant country to receive a kingdom for himself, and then to return.

We must understand that Christ WILL Return.

13 And he called ten of his own servants and gave them ten minas, and said to them, ‘Do business with this money until I come back.’

EVERYONE has been Blessed in some capacity.

14 But his citizens hated him and sent a delegation after him, saying, ‘We do not want this man to reign over us.’

15 When he returned after receiving the kingdom, he ordered that these servants, to whom he had given the money, be summoned to him so that he would learn how much they had made by the business they had done.

When Christ returns, there will be an Accounting for our management of God’s resources.

16 The first servant appeared, saying, ‘Master, your mina has made ten minas more.’ 17 And he said to him, ‘Well done, good servant; since you have been faithful in a very little thing, you are to have authority over ten cities.’ 18 The second one came, saying, ‘Your mina, master, has made five minas.’ 19 And he said to him also, ‘And you are to be over five cities.’

20 And then another came, saying, ‘Master, here is your mina, which I kept tucked away in a handkerchief; 21 for I was afraid of you, because you are a demanding man; you take up what you did not lay down, and reap what you did not sow.’ 22 He said to him, ‘From your own lips I will judge you, you worthless servant. Did you know that I am a demanding man, taking up what I did not lay down, and reaping what I did not sow?

FEAR destroys even the potential for Wealth.

23 And so why did you not put my money in the bank, and when I came back, I would have collected it with interest?’

24 And then he said to the other servants who were present, ‘Take the mina away from him and give it to the one who has the ten minas.’ 25 And they said to him, ‘Master, he already has ten minas.’ 26 ‘I tell you that to everyone who has, more shall be given, but from the one who does not have, even what he does have shall be taken away.

Isaiah 55:8 — For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. 9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.
