Day 226, August 14 - Matthew 25

Click here for today's reading

26 The master was furious. Master: You are a pathetic excuse for a servant! You have disproved my trust in you and squandered my generosity. You know I always make a profit!

30 And as for the slave who made no profit but buried his talent in the ground? His master ordered his slaves to tie him up and throw him outside into the utter darkness where there is miserable mourning and great fear.

I don't want to be the servant that buries my talent.


  1. Matthew 25
    10 “While they were buying oil, the groom arrived. The bridesmaids who were ready went with him into the wedding hall, and the door was shut.

    44 “They, too, will ask, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or as a stranger or in need of clothes or sick or in prison and didn’t help you?’
    45 “He will answer them, ‘I can guarantee this truth: Whatever you failed to do for one of my brothers or sisters, no matter how unimportant ⌊they seemed⌋, you failed to do for me.’

  2. 40 And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’

    I always try to find what stands out for me before I read the other comments. We all had different ones today! :-)

    This one stands out for me because I know there is so much more I can do for others in need and I feel so "maxed" out sometimes, I have a hard time reaching out a helping hand. But, when I do, the blessings always come back in wonderful ways.

    1. I do too, Sharon! So good to have you back! I will be gone next week but will catch back up when I am home again. Kathleen
