Bible Commentary for Matthew 25:23

Wesley's Notes for Matthew 25:23


25:24 I knew thou art a hard man - No. Thou knowest him not. He never knew God, who thinks him a hard master. Reaping where thou hast not sown - That is, requiring more of us than thou hast given us power to perform. So does every obstinate sinner, in one kind or other, lay the blame of his own sins on God.

25:25 And I was afraid - Lest if I had improved my talent, I should have had the more to answer for. So from this fear, one will not learn to read, another will not hear sermons!

    It is an illustration Jesus gave to us that if we can follow His steps that is have faith in him, obey him, keep his commandments, serve him with the whole of our hearts, worship him only, wining souls for him, fear him, study his word, waiting for his second appearance, etc he promised us that he will make us ruler over many things.
  • MockingBird on Matthew 25:23
    there is coming a day when I will stand before God Almighty and give an account of everything I ever die in this life. It is my prayer that He will be able to say Well done thou good and faithful servant. I want to walk so as to please my Lord !!!!
