Jesus’ Stories – Ten Minas
“You had one job”. You’re probably familiar with the internet memes, where people share photos of mistakes that professionals, or even everyday people, make that appear obvious and easy to understand. Some of these mistakes are funny, some may have a lasting impact.
In the Parable of the Ten Minas, failure to do his “one job” lands a servant in a terrible situation. Instead of using the mina he was given, he wasted the opportunity, making excuses for his failure. We are all given “one job” – to follow Jesus using the life he has given us. Will you use your life’s gifts (time, talent, etc.) to help others, or hoard them like the wicked servant? What does doing your “one job” look like as a follower of Jesus?
