All Those Talents

We are always awed by the infuriated response of the very disappointed master in today's Gospel when he learns that his timid servant has buried the sum that was given to him. 

We imagine that he might have said, "You buried it? Invest it, even spend it, waste it, enjoy it, share it with others. Be creative, thoughtful and loving with all I have given you. But please do not hide it all underground."

How do we use all that has been entrusted to us?
