This verse of the Bible teaches us the expectations of God towards our living as saved saints by the shed Blood of Jesus for Redemption and Salvation wherein the course of the saving Grace is judiciously expended by the saved to bring more into the fold at His coming.

This verse of the parable teaches us that we must strengthen and multiply the grace we have been given so that we may be saved and help save others from eternal death when Our lord comes. Jesus has paid a price for us ( his saints) and has taken us out of the world of sin and we must stay where he has placed us ( in his Grace) busying ourselves with the affairs of our salvation.
