- Youngs Literal Bible
Mt 25:21 I will make thee ruler over many things. (1) Observe here that it is God's talents that have made the ten talents. The fruitfulness of our work depends on what God has given us. (2) In God's government, promotion depends on fidelity. This is in a measure true, here and how; fulfillment of duty in a lower and lesser station is rewarded by the providence which bids us to go up higher. (3) Present duties are trials of character; God gives the talents that he may test and see who is worthy of a trust. (4) The trusts given here below, by our use of which are to show ourselves capable of receiving the crown above, Jesus calls "a few things". This is in contrast with the trusts we will enjoy in the heavenly kingdom.

If you tend to the things God has given you to do he will make you ruler over many things: enter in the Lords Joy
Treat others as you yourself want to be treated
If you were hungry what would you want of others
If you were naked and miserable what then?
if you were sick and lonely
what if you were in prison and no one came, how would you like for these things to be if they happened to you? these are the things of God.
He who give a child so much as a cold glass of water in the name of Jesus shall in no way lose his reward.
