STEPPING STONES-Part 5-HOW TO INVEST YOUR LIFE-踏腳石-如何投資你的一生

Matthew 馬太福音25:14-30

(Listen to the sermon, 聽講道)

14 “Again, it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants and entrusted his property to them. 15 To one he gave five talents of money, to another two talents, and to another one talent, each according to his ability. Then he went on his journey. 16 The man who had received the five talents went at once and put his money to work and gained five more. 17 So also, the one with the two talents gained two more. 18 But the man who had received the one talent went off, dug a hole in the ground and hid his master’s money. 19 “After a long time the master of those servants returned and settled accounts with them. 20 The man who had received the five talents brought the other five. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘you entrusted me with five talents. See, I have gained five more.’ 21 “His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’ 22 “The man with the two talents also came. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘you entrusted me with two talents; see, I have gained two more.’ 23 “His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’ 24 “Then the man who had received the one talent came. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘I knew that you are a hard man, harvesting where you have not sown and gathering where you have not scattered seed. 25 So I was afraid and went out and hid your talent in the ground. See, here is what belongs to you.’ 26 “His master replied, ‘You wicked, lazy servant! So you knew that I harvest where I have not sown and gather where I have not scattered seed? 27 Well then, you should have put my money on deposit with the bankers, so that when I returned I would have received it back with interest. 28 ” ‘Take the talent from him and give it to the one who has the ten talents. 29 For everyone who has will be given more, and he will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken from him. 30 And throw that worthless servant outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’  Matthew 25:14-30

14“天國又像一個人要出外遠行,就叫自己的僕人來,把產業交給他們。15他按照各人的才幹,一個給三萬個銀幣,一個給一萬二千個銀幣,一個給六千個銀幣,然後就遠行去了。16那領了三萬的馬上去做生意,另外賺了三萬。17那領了一萬二千的也是這樣,另賺了一萬二千。18但那領了六千的,卻去把地挖開,把主人的錢藏起來。19過了很久,那些僕人的主人回來了,要和他們算帳。20那領了三萬個銀幣的,帶著另外的三萬前來,說:‘主啊,你交了三萬給我,你看,我又賺了三萬。’21主人對他說:‘又良善又忠心的僕人哪,你作得好!你既然在不多的事上忠心,我要派你管理許多的事。進來,享受你主人的快樂吧!’22那領了一萬二千的也前來,說:‘主啊,你交了一萬二千給我,你看,我又賺了一萬二千。’23主人對他說:‘又良善又忠心的僕人哪,你作得好!你既然在不多的事上忠心,我要派你管理許多的事。進來,享受你主人的快樂吧!’24那領了六千的也前來,說:‘主啊,我知道你是個嚴厲的人,沒有撒種的地方,你要收割;沒有散播的地方,你要收聚。25所以,我就害怕起來,去把你的錢藏在地裡。你看,你的錢還在這裡。’26可是主人對他說:‘你這個又可惡又懶惰的僕人,你既然知道我要在沒有撒種的地方收割,在沒有散播的地方收聚,27那你就應該把我的錢存入銀行,到我回來的時候,可以連本帶利收回。28你們把他的六千銀幣拿去,交給那個有六萬的。29因為凡是有的,還要給他,他就充足有餘;凡是沒有的,就算他有甚麼也要拿去。30把這沒有用的僕人丟在外面的黑暗裡,在那裡必要哀哭切齒。’

馬 太 福 音25:14-30
