But when he returned after obtaining the kingship, he had the servants called, to whom he had given the money, to learn what they had gained by trading.
There are few words associated more with being an adult than, "investment". We are always looking for ways to use our time and money in wise ways, ways that will hopefully earn us more money and save us time. That is what the king in this parable asked of his servants before he left. He wanted them to invest what he had given them. God asks the same of us. The gifts, talents, and blessings God gives us are meant to be used for his glory and to bring others to him. So, think about how you can use what God's given you to do his work. It may be something you'd never thought could be useful in furthering God's kingdom. Don't be afraid to get creative!
