“A talent” was a large sum of money. Each of the servants in the parable was given talents according to his ability to prosper the master’s business. We do not have large sums of money so how does God equip us to work for and prosper His kingdom today?

I think God equips us with different abilities, skills, gifts. And that these are revealed to us at the appropriate time. The difficult bit is recognising them, developing them and using them for God's purpose. This can be hindered I feel, by our own wants abd desires, our own insecurities and the encouragement (or lack of it) of those around us.

I also think there is perhaps a danger of focusing so much on a particular gift that you lose sight of how it fits in with others and lose the appreciation of other gifts of those around you.

I think I know what you mean - and I think I agree with you - but can you expand on this a bit more?
