Luke 17:10 ” When you have done everything you were told to do, you should say, ‘We are unworthy servants; we have only done our duty.’ “

So what exactly is our duty to the Lord? In the Parable of the Talents in Matthew 25, the Master gives his servants varying amounts of money to invest while he is gone. Some did well, others not so much. The master charged them all with the responsibility to use what he gave them wisely…but it was each individual’s duty & obligation to follow through. The duty we have from our Master is sharing the Gospel Message with others. I Corinthians 9:16 tells us we should be just as compelled to use wisely what our Master has entrusted us with…and so someday being able to say, “I have only done my duty.”
