Our Bible study continues in Matthew and takes us to the 25th chapter, verses 14 through 30. It's the familiar parable of the talents. Doctor Robbins asks a logical leadoff question why didn't the third servant invest the one talent his master had given him to use while he was gone? The other two servants did it naturally, and apparently without delay.

The penalty for not using the talent wisely was incredibly severe. How does this parable impact our lives today, and does it have anything to do with us in today's study of Scripture? Thomas Q gives several reasons why the servant in question decided not to invest his talent as his master expected. Now there's a good chance you will be able to identify with one or more of the reasons.

Here is our teacher, Thomas Q Robbins, with a question. How many of us are third servant?

After you have listened maybe you could take this short quiz.

Were you able to identify with one of the reasons Thomas Q gave as to why the third servant buried his talent and failed to use it? Which ones, if any, caught your attention? Did you agree with Doctor Robbins application that we are a church, not a club.

We depend upon investment, the investment of our lives and our talents for the witness of our Lord and Savior. We must share the gospel with those close by who never heard or just don't understand. If we're part of the family of God and a member of a local church, we need to ask for and follow the will of the master and not be a third servant.

Something To Consider

We’ve all had our share of failing to accomplish something that we set out to do.  But, failing in this way isn’t the same thing as failure!   Failure occurs when we give up and no longer think that we can succeed.  So remember, success comes in “cans”  --  failure comes in “can’ts!"  The truth is, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”  (Philippians 4:13)    -Thomas Q.
