The parable of the talents Hi, I do not understand with the parable of the talents in Matthew 25: 14-28, especially when the master was scolding the servant with only one talent. As far as I know, the master represents God and we are the servants. How come the master said such thing like this : ''You wicked, lazy servant! So you knew that I harvest where I have not sown and gather where I have not scattered seed?" . What does it mean? Thanks.
