The Parable of the Talents

Matthew 25: 14-30

14 “For it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants[a] and entrusted to them his property. 15 To one he gave five talents,[b] to another two, to another one, to each according to his ability. Then he went away. 16 He who had received the five talents went at once and traded with them, and he made five talents more. 17 So also he who had the two talents made two talents more. 18 But he who had received the one talent went and dug in the ground and hid his master’s money. 19 Now after a long time the master of those servants came and settled accounts with them. 20 And he who had received the five talents came forward, bringing five talents more, saying, ‘Master, you delivered to me five talents; here, I have made five talents more.’ 21 His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant.[c] You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.’ 22 And he also who had the two talents came forward, saying, ‘Master, you delivered to me two talents; here, I have made two talents more.’ 23 His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.’ 24 He also who had received the one talent came forward, saying, ‘Master, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you did not sow, and gathering where you scattered no seed, 25 so I was afraid, and I went and hid your talent in the ground. Here, you have what is yours.’ 26 But his master answered him, ‘You wicked and slothful servant! You knew that I reap where I have not sown and gather where I scattered no seed? 27 Then you ought to have invested my money with the bankers, and at my coming I should have received what was my own with interest. 28 So take the talent from him and give it to him who has the ten talents. 29 For to everyone who has will more be given, and he will have an abundance. But from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away. 30 And cast the worthless servant into the outer darkness. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’

…even Christians

who read and study

yet, you just sit there

hands all muddy

never active

in your know

you don’t share

you don’t glow

your light is buried

under your fear

you sit and hold

cover your ears

stop going to church

cause you feel convicted

so you don’t go

new fear addicted

such is your life

you don’t pray

you see the lost

but you won’t say

you don’t have His Name

on your lips

you don’t witness

don’t talk

mind your business

you don’t even get

that you’re spreading the sickness

you coward,

you buried

the coin you were gave

instead of investing

you dug your own grave

Jesus rebuked

in the parable of old

or you did you erase

that story He told

did you skip over

to verses you like

inside of that Book

written in black and white

and in red with the blood

that He shed on the cross

yet, you can just sit there

and simply just toss

out the command

to go and keep fishing

the lost are all waiting

they’re desperately wishing

and you have the answers

they worked perfect for you

and yet, you will let them

die in their goo

go and be reaching

go and be telling

go and be loving

we must be dispelling

the lies that the educated

haunt and destroy

the love of The Father

is what we can enjoy

so bravely stand out

and shine in HIs light

the gift was so given

so give more, cause it’s right

get back to the faith

that saved you back then

start going to church

where others support

and remind you that Jesus

is Holy retort

will snap you out of

your earthly desires

that never end greatly

the end is hell fires

so I challenge you Christian

get up and start living

His coming back soon

that’s truth that I’m giving

Keep your eyes focused

up in the clouds

The earth, it is trembling

the Christians resound

“Come soon Jesus!”

this earth is not good

the earth is so sick

it’s not as it should

we need you please Jesus

“Come back today!”

Please gather your church

and take us away

Your Will be DONE

forever again

please save all of those

who call You their Friend

who call You their Father

who love You so much

we worship You, Jesus

You have given us such

mercy and love

forgiveness, unending

we love You Father

we love You for sending

Your Only Son

Sacrifice great

we love you God

for what was felt on that date

the horrible and wonderful

day that He died

a ransom for all

and death couldn’t hide

the Glory of God,

was nailed to that tree

so death was defeated

for you and for me

Glory to you Father

for all You have done

for loving us so much

the battle, You’ve won

we have comfort in knowing

that You win the war

and we are sided

with you, Holy Lord

Praise be the Father

Praise be the Son

Praise be the Spirit

You’re Three in One

I love you, Jesus

I’ll listen and pray

and I’ll speak of you, Jesus

for all of my days

Please help me be braver

to conquer the sin

but not on my own, Lord,

let each day begin

down on my knees

in humble request

to stop being sinful

stop failing the test

to stop my dumb mouth

from doing such wrong

Please help me Jesus

when I’m feeling not strong

scoop me up off the floor

of my sin and regret

and remind me Sweet Jesus

why I’m not done yet

the mission You gave me

is still here to do

and that’s why I’m here

rhyming for You

Dear Lord, in the midst of my sorrow, in the midst of my pain please love me and heal me and teach me again, that you are much bigger than all of the past and that you love me Jesus, your love comes so fast, when I am feeling lost and sin comes to lie, you fasten my seat belt and comfort my cry. you tell me you love me in spite of my sin, and you remind me that you created all that’s within, you made me to fight through the dark of the day, and you make the days darker, so new light will stay, you keep me kneeling, down on painful knees, so you help me be humble and always say please, please father help me, Im hurting inside, I not doing so well and I can no longer hide, my heart is so hurting, my life is crumbling fast and I feel fear inside and I don’t want it to last, I want to see you, I want to explore, I want to see heaven I want that much more, than this horrible earth full of sin and dismay. in heaven you promised that it won’t be that way. I’m keeping my eyes, focus wholly on you, I love you sweet Jesus, please help me be new, help me find new strength, the old is used up. I drank all of it and I even lost the cup. I’m drained and I’m hurting, I’m down on the floor, please help me Jesus, help me again, even more. save us dear lord, we are tired and worn, this life is exhausting, we are sad, we still mourn, thank you for bearing the weight of the cross, thank you for hurt for the pain for the loss, thank you for burdens that hold us down tight, for the air is still clean here, I can smell what is right, I can still see the light, that glows from the door, so I cling to you Jesus, I can hear you once more, and there you are knocking, come open I’m here. I never left you, you closed me out dear, return to my arms, don’t walk away, I’m here and I love you, and I’ll always stay. No one can pluck you, out of my hands, the scars are reminders, true love understands. thank you Jesus for prayer and for time, for teaching me more, through words that do rhyme, thank you for hearing and being right there, thank you for hearing my words and my prayer, thank you for loving and talking to me, thank you for dying upon that sad tree, thank you for salvation that you gave even me, that is the best example of your great mercy. You know my heart, you know that it’s yours, and that its hurting, so I give it to you, I give you my hurting, cause I don’t know what to do, and what I have learned is that it is the best, to give it to you cause you do all the rest, you in your wisdom, take it from me and you understand what I can’t ever see. I love you Jesus, I love you so much, I love you forever I know there is such more to learn, more to know, more to give, more to grow, the pain of the growing is not very fun, but you are holding me down and so I won’t run, I won’t go back, to the old sickly ways, I am fighting the good fight for the rest of my days. I give it to you, in Jesus, your name, I give it to you You Lord, again and again. Amen
