The belief that only special people belong in ministry leads some to remain uninvolved in the work of the Church. Such a belief, however, is dangerously mistaken. As the Parable of the Ten Minas illustrates, God gives the Gospel as a special gift to all citizens of His Kingdom—and all have a duty to use that gift to further the work of God on earth.
11As they heard these things, he proceeded to tell a parable, because he was near to Jerusalem, and because they supposed that the kingdom of God was to appear immediately.
