The servant was frightened of the new king. He feared losing the money the king gave him for safe keeping in a bad deal. So he did not play to win. He played not to lose. Any coach will tell you that’s the surest way to lose. We are accountable. The king is coming back to ask what we did with what he gave us. The measure will not be as much about how well we did as whether we got after it in the first place. The minas in this story were given in the same amounts to everyone. What is it that every person who belongs to Jesus gets in the same measure? It’s not gifts: our gifts differ.

We receive the mystical union with Christ. Meanwhile Luke 19: 11-27
