Parable About Talents

Parable About Talents

Dear Wisdom,

Please help us to embrace the meanings of the parable from Jesus regarding the master who leaves various amounts of talent to his servants:

The parable in Matthew 25:14–30 tells of a master who was leaving his home to travel, and before going entrusted this property to his servants. One servant receives 5 talents, the second 2 talents, and the third 1 talent, according to their respective abilities.

Returning after a long absence, the master asks his servants for an accounting. The first 2 servants explain that they have each put their money to work and double the value of the property they were entrusted with, and so they were each rewarded:

His Lord said to him, “ Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a few things. I will set you over many things. Enter into the joy of your Lord.” Matthew 25:23

The third servant, however, had merely hidden his talent in a hole in the ground, and is punished for being lazy:

He also who had received the one talent came and said, “ Lord, I knew that you are a hard man, reaping where you did not sow, and gathering where you did not scatter. I was afraid, and went away and hid your talent in the earth. Behold, you have what is yours.”

But his Lord answered him,  ”You wicked and slothful servant. You knew that I reap where I didn’t sow. And gather where I didn’t scatter. You ought therefore to have deposited my money with the bankers, and at my coming I should have received back my own with interest. Take away therefore the talent from him and give it to him who has the 10 talents. For to everyone who has will be given, and he will have abundance, but from him who doesn’t have, even that which he has will be taken away. Throw out the unprofitable servant into the outer darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of the teeth.” Matthew 25:24–30

What does it mean? Do talents (money) represent talents (talents as intelligence, planning, farming, music) or is it more literal then metaphorical? Thank YOU!

Care to comment, Wisdom?


This parable addresses both the human and the soul. Everyone is born with some talent and they are also born at a vibration level. They come to earth to “grow these talents”. Some hide their gifts from the world and are like eagles imitating chickens. They never know the thrill of soaring. If they don’t work on growing their vibration level, they can end up leaving earth with a denser tone because they are in egos control.

God is just.

A parent is not helping a child if they do not teach them how to work with society. The practice of meditation involves self-discipline. A person challenges themself when committing to a routine and being faithful every day. With time, one starts reaping the benefits. They can become more patient and have better focus. Most people hide their light or the expression of their Higher Self. They do not believe God is actually within them. They do not believe God’s nature is Love.

They actually believe it is better to try and hide from the Most High God. Some believe it is God that has brought them problems instead of realizing it is their own souls request. Each soul is like a human in its maturity. At first the baby crawls and then takes baby steps. As it accomplishes one phase, it is ready to move on to the next step. The soul also needs to master a level before they can move on to the next vibration range.

*Most don’t know the purpose of life on earth: To hone their skills to be able to absorb more God.

People think their bank account tells their self-worth. When the human dies, the money is worthless. It does not enhance their vibration level. The soul doesn’t use egos rating of value. Its goal was to grow in understanding the essence of God.

*To bury your talents is to live without being awake to your true nature.

Do not doubt you can soar like an eagle.

             Thank you so much, Wisdom, with joy.

            You are welcome our little stopwatch.

You feel you are in the “pause” mode waiting to start again. When one starts too soon, they lose the race. Trying to force the heel down at this time is tearing new muscle. You can stand on the ball of your right foot until some strength is built. Eternity has no races. Use the analogy of  “baby steps”. An eagle first learns to hop before it learns to fly. Praise each accomplishment. That is how a dream can come true.
