After seeing what Zacchaeus had done and what Jesus had said, the crowd following him on their way to Jerusalem thought that the kingdom of God would come at this very moment, and the celebration of the Jewish Passover was approaching. The parable that Christ was facing this thought, concerns the ten mines that had to be multiplied, to say that it is not wise to enter into a passive waiting but that it is necessary to act. The other message is that everything has its time; what is needed is patience while actively preparing. This passage from St. Luke confirms what Matthew tells us in 25, 14-30, more clearly "the Gospel does not allow us idleness". It is therefore up to each one of us to reflect on the words of Christ: "Are we of those who multiply the mines and talents given to us or are we only waiting for the return of the Lord and King".
