According to this parable the three workers were given talents to multiply, the first was given ten talents, the second received five talents while the third received one talent. At the time the master came for the returns the first returned twenty talents, the second returned ten talents each giving 100% profit. The third returned one talents as he had received.
In the view of contemporary Christian the latter was faithful; however, he was condemned for his laziness. This should serve as an insightful parable for Christian to take up the challenge and use whatever talents they have been given by God to reach out to the sinners through the gospel of Jesus Christ.
