Practical Christian Philosophy - Don't get caught holding the bag

Alison was an important ambassador for a great country living in a very luxurious country. She made over 6 figures a year and enjoyed the best of what this life had to offer. Alice had a house, a luxury car, and everything else she desired. It was like Santa came for Christmas one year and left the whole bag at her house.

Then one day she heard a knock on the door. She opened the door and the lights of the cameras blinded her as the reporters shoved microphones in her face. "What have you done with all of the money that you made?" The reporters had done their homework and knew about every penny she had spent. Alison knew that she was in trouble, and there was not much she could do. If only she could go back in time, but that was impossible. Instead of maximizing the interests of her country, she had got caught up in the interest of the foreign country. She got caught holding the bag.

He also who had received the one talent came forward, saying, 'Master, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you did not sow, and gathering where you scattered no seed, so I was afraid, and I went and hid your talent in the ground. Here you have what is yours. But his master answered him, 'You wicked and slothful servant! You knew that I reap where I have not sowed and gather where I scattered no seed? Then you ought to have invested my money with the bankers, and at my coming I should have received what was my own with interest. So take the talent from him and give it to him who as the ten talents. For to everyone who has will more be given, and he will have an abundance. But from the one who has not , even what he has will be taken away. And cast the worthless servant into the outer darkness. In the that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.' (Matt. 25:24:30)
