Luke 19:13 (b) These pounds represent the quantity of the talents and gifts possessed rather than the quality. One Christian may be able to sing well, play well on an instrument, lead children's meetings, expound the Scriptures, and hold evangelistic services. This one has many "talents." Another Christian may have unusual ability as an evangelist, be outstanding in that particular ministry of Christian service, and not be able to play an instrument or lead singing or handle young people's work. This man's gift is the "pound." Some have less, and some have more of ability in one particular line. So some have one pound of ability, while others may have ten pounds. In the parable of the talents one may have two gifts for ministry and another may have eight or ten gifts in ministry. These are the "talents." (See under TALENTS).
