Last week we learned how God is radically transforming us, and, in doing so, is creating us to be reflections of the glory of God to others. This week we discover that with transformation comes accountability. In the Parable of the Talents, a man gives his three servants differing amounts of money to invest and multiply. Two servants return double what they were given, but one servant returns only what he was given. Through the words of Jesus we realize that burying our talents in a field is not what is required of us and will not be rewarded. What are you doing with the talents God has given you? To the one who has been given much, much is required.
