    Believers will give an account of their stewardship on earth when at the judgement seat of Christ. James Hollandsworth has a very helpful message on this passage entitled, " Parables of Talents and Pounds " in his series Rightly Dividing the Parables.

    God gave you the gift of life, What you do with it is your gift to him,So be sure to give him a gift that is worth receiving.
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    The message that rings throughout this chapter is that we should be ever ready for we know not when the Lord shall come. Readiness means being in a state where we can qualify for the Lord's Kingdom. Readiness means being at the centre of God's Will all the time. We cannot achieve this state by our power or might but by the Grace of God. Salvation is through Grace.

    I think we must always live our life preparing for the return of Jesus.
  • Irene123
    The 'oil' is the symbolic of the Holy Ghost: being prayed up in the spirit everyday - and that is not referring to Jesus' 'example' prayer in Matt. - "Our Father which art in Heaven ..... "; repeating this everyday as one's 'prayer life' is tatamount to saying the rosary. We are to 'converse' with Him Just as we'd talk to our earthly fathers about our needs and/or just how much we love Him.
