The spiritual blank

“For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods. And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey. Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents. And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two. But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his lord’s money.” (Matthew 25:14-18)

The man who received one talent “played it safe”, he did not risk offending anyone by sharing the truth.

By not doing anything he did not risk anything.

By not sharing what God has given you you will have a nice, convenient, trouble-free life, just like the one talent man, you can avoid all kinds of unpleasantness, all controversies, never get into an argument, keep your nose clean the whole time.

By hiding your talent the whole world may love you. Certainly, no one’s gonna bother you, as you don’t bother them, your talent is safe and well hidden out of view.

They are a “spiritual blank” . Christian? Yes. But a blank. A nice person, no doubt, but an empty shell.
