I have always struggled with the parable of the talents.
I struggle with seeing myself in the story. I get the major points. I get the principles.
But, I really want to know about another scenario:
What if there was a guy who got 6 talents and he didn’t bury them in the ground, but he invested them and the investment went bad… and then he worked his butt off to earn 2 talents… and comes with that story… what would the response have been to this?
And then I begin to wonder, is this scenario not an option… is this scenario intentionally not told in the story? Is it trying to drive home that point that IF you invest it will not comeback empty?
Well, my few and favored readers and friends… I fear I have more questions than answers today…
curious what this sturs up in others…
