December 26, Luke 19:11-27 Just do something with what you have.

The story says that the ruler left and gave his servants something to trade with. Some have interpreted this ruler to be God and what he gave to be skills, others tell the story that the money represents the gospel message. I suppose either interpretation is valid. Let's just look at face value, the ruler gave his subject some money to trade with. In Matthew's gospel he adds that to each was given according to his ability. Some traded and made more but one did nothing. It was with this man that the ruler was angry because he didn't even try. So if we take from this the first two interpretations, that God has given each of us something to trade with, perhaps the gospel message, and we do nothing with it will He be happy? Had this last servant invested and lost the money the ruler would not be angry because he tried. We each have something that we can do, not all of us will succeed, of course that also depends on how one measures success. But we are all expected to do something.
