Romans 11:29 For the gifts and calling of God are unchangeable.
Pastor Scott took the verse in Romans with the Parable in Matthew to explain that God doesn't want your talents back, if you "fail." In the case of an "epic fail" as the lingo goes today, you've wasted your gift. God had the gift given to someone else when the third man failed. He intended for it to be used. How are you using your "gift" today? What is it that God has given you to do, that will go undone if you fail? Don't hide your talent, but invest it in the kingdom. You can't fail when you put it to work.
