What do you think part in Matthew?
"25:14 For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country,
who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods.
25:15 And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another
one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway
took his journey.
25:16 Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the
same, and made them other five talents.
25:17 And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two.
25:18 But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid
his lordís money.
25:19 After a long time the Lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth
with them.
25:20 And so he that had received five talents came and brought other
five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents:
behold, I have gained beside them five talents more.
25:21 His Lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant:
thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over
many things: enter thou into the joy of thy Lord.
25:22 He also that had received two talents came and said, Lord, thou
deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other
talents beside them.
25:23 His Lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou
hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over
many things: enter thou into the joy of thy Lord.
25:24 Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I
knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not
sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed:
25:25 And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there
thou hast that is thine.
25:26 His Lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful
servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather
where I have not strawed:
25:27 Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers,
and then at my coming I should have received mine own with
usury.
25:28 Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath
ten talents.
25:29 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."

Use your talent.
Work as if you work for God Himself.
To the one that God gifted alot, alot is required from. If all you have is one talent, use it to His Glory.
God Bless!

It speaks us about our mission as Christian to do the will of our Father. Every one has been given certain amount of responsibility according to his/hers ability. But if one ignores the will of God and doesn't do what he is supposed to do then he will loose his place in heaven.

That's the way I read it. God is truly good because He gives us all work according to our ability.

And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him. - Col 3:17

Unless the LORD builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; unless the LORD keeps the city, the watchman stays awake in vain. - Psalms 127:1
