People's Bible Notes for Matthew 25:29


Mt 25:29 To every one that hath shall be given. Every attainment of honor, wealth, knowledge, or spiritual grace helps to render further attainment more easy and more assured; while it is spiritually as well as materially true that "the destruction of the poor is their poverty" (Pr 10:15). Shall be taken away even that which he hath. For every "hath" there is a richer "hath"; and in every "hath not" a deeper, poorer "hath not".

Discussion for Matthew 25:29

  • Faithfull for verse 29
    Matthew 25:29 For unto every one that hath (the gifts of the Holy Spirit) shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not (The Holy Spirit) shall be taken away even that which he hath.
  • I was taught "even that which he seemeth to have" as per the Wycliffe Bible.
    My sense of it is that if a person is obsessed with their poverty, always considering what they have NOT, then they will continue to lose even what they seem to have. If on the other hand a person is appreciative of what they have, giving thanks for it, taking care of it, then more will be added unto them.
