The Christian need to share our gifts of Treasure may be best illustrated in Matthew 25:14-30, the parable of a man going on a journey. Before departing, he entrusts talents or money to his servants.
- The one who receives five talents and works to build them into five more.
- The one who receives two talents, doubles his value as well.
- The one who receives one talent, buries it.
When the master returns, he praises the first and second servants, but he takes the one talent from the third servant because the servant was not a good steward of the money, having done nothing to increase its value. This parable teaches us about being good stewards. We are to make good use of material gifts given to us by God.
