This parable is mostly a message to the people of Israel who will live in the last days before the Lord returns. As we refer to Matthew 24:32-34, “Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near. Even so, when you see all these things, you know that it is near, right at the door. Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened”, these people who have believed the Lord would be alive when the Lord returns, and the ones who believed in Him will be rewarded according their stewardship of His resources entrusted to them while the ones that fear and do not believe will be rejected and judged.
From the time of the creation of mankind, each individual has been entrusted with resources of time and material wealth. Everything we have comes from God and belongs to Him. We are responsible for using those resources so that they increase in value. As Christians, we have additionally the most valuable resource of all – the Word of God. If we believe and understand Him, and apply His Word as good stewards, we are a blessing to others and the value of what we do will eventually multiply.
As we apply the teachings of this parable to our journey in The Boys’ Brigade, it shows that any awards that we want, whether badges, promotion, we need to work hard for it and not just sit there and expect everything to appear. Let us all work hard to gain what we want, and make our dreams a reality!!
