Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents.
For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath—Matt.
Why is the one-talented
man chosen as an illustration of these talent-burials? It is to show
the responsibility of those who have least—that the Lord expects
even the least of His consecrated people to know of and to use the
talents (opportunities) he has in his possession, and that he will
not hold guiltless even those who have the smallest ability
(opportunity) to serve Him and His brethren and His Truth, and who
neglect to use it.
