Matthew 25:14-30

As in the parable about the bridesmaids in the preceding passage, the focus is on the judgment scene. There are two groups, the wise who invest their talents and the foolish who bury them. While watching and waiting for the return of the Son of Man, those who are wise do not sit idly but engage in fruitful action.

When overwhelmed, it is easy to fall into a state of emotional and physical paralysis that compounds anxiety and fear. I pray to be moved to act in ways that serve the kingdom here and now.
