THE THREE TRIGGERS
Author requests article critique
What do you suppose is striking in the parable of the talents? At the outset it looks as if God is partial in distributing the talents. However, if you keenly observe, the Master is impartial on three aspects although the face value of the talents varied for each of His steward. The Bible clearly states that, “God shows personal favouritism to no man” (Galatians 2:6). The Master gave something to each one. He leaves none of His steward deprived of that ‘something’. As Christians, we are called to bear in mind that no one is asked to transact with ‘nothing’.
God never expects us to make something out of nothing because that is His job. “-God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did...” (Romans 4:17). Always remember that He has given each one of us something. Never ever say, “I have received nothing from God”. If you dare to say that, you are fooling yourself. You are provided with a talent or more. Search today and trigger that talent.
It must also be noted that the Master gave the same time frame – a long time, for each of them. “For there is no partiality with God” (Romans 2:11). God will never give something today and ask for business details the following day. He is aware of our state. “For He knows our frame; He remembers that we are dust.” (Psalm 103:14). Certainly we are incapable of doing anything in a short span. Therefore, He allows a considerable length of time for us to do His business.
Accountability is His style. He said to the stewards, “Settle your accounts with Me” without any discrimination. “Then Peter opened his mouth and said, ‘In truth I perceive that God shows no partiality’” (Acts 10:34). We are accountable for every resource gifted to us.
Everyone is interested in the outcome, so also is the Master. He demands account even for our words. “But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgement.” (Matthew 12:36).
No overhead escapes His eye without being tallied. God is perfect. “Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect” (Matthew 5:48). Mind you, the Master’s management is meticulous and mind-blogging.
At daybreak, without partiality God credits us with eighty six thousand seconds with the condition “use or you lose”. Beware! The wasted or unused time cannot be carried forward into your account the next day. You are definitely given a certain time. As Christians we are called to redeem the time. “See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil.” (Ephesians 5:15, 16).
How did each of them look at their Master? This is exactly where variation steps in. The first two address Him as ‘Lord”. While the steward who received just one talent considers Him as a hard-hearted person. Certainly their outlook of their Master is striking. Examine as to how you have understood Him. Your viewpoint plays a vital role.
God has given each of us the ability to talk. Even those who are dumb are capable of conveying their thoughts to others through sign language. We are provided with the ability to talk. “And coming in that instant she gave thanks to the Lord, and spoke of Him to all those who looked for redemption in Jerusalem.” (Luke 2:38). Like Anna, every Christian has to talk. Thank God for we did not choose Him, but He chose us and appointed us that we should go and bear fruit, and that our fruit should remain...(John 15:16).
The heavenly host praised God. When the shepherds saw Baby Jesus, they made widely known the saying which was told them concerning this Child (Luke 2:17). Tell others about redemption in India. Remember the Master’s last command. “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you;.... Amen.” (Matthew 28:18-20).
Jesus’ last command is our first concern and mission. God desires that idols and adultery flee from India. Let’s trigger the God-given triple T’s of talent, time and talking ability to transform India exactly as Lord Jesus desires to see it.
