Because when a man like Jesus`disciple has had a great deal given him,
a great deal will be demanded of him;when a man like Jesus`disciple has had a great deal given him on trust, even more will be expected of him.

Wathfulness?

    Jesus said the birts have their nets to rest but a Son of man has no place to rest. No one known the time so we must be watchful and prayful. When my father was alive i asked him why is he woshing small gods and known very well that Christ will come and take His children to Heaver  he told me that Christ will not come that  year, unfortunat  the next year he past  away.

      DON'T DOUBT CHRIST WILL COME UNESPECTELY ?

Why does Jesus describe to his disciples how disobedient, ignorant and lazy servants are punished by their master, and how obedient, alert and active servants are given greater authority?
It`s an everyday parallel that being familiar to many will be very clear. Not talking in parables to everyone. Of course the entrusted Treasure is not the earthly one. And the death we need to be afraid of is not the one of the body and the earthly ones are not the most precious treasures we need to watch over but our Souls. The disciples will have to guard their flocks and make sure the devil doesn`t snatch them anyway. Lamps burning and wide open eyes on any potential weed that by spreading might be used by the devil to snatch them away. The more caring and attentive the larger the entrusted flock. Asking for faithfulness and alertness at all times. We don`t know when the master`s coming back. Always aware of his presence. If forgotten that brings carelesseness and distractions. Like the disciples falling asleep when waiting with Jesus: KNOW that the Lord will come again and know the paths along which you were asked to lead that flock entrusted to you. Helping them up and along with the necessary strenght - no laziness that stems from carelessness.

The lord of the servants has a rules of law in his kingdom and if the servants disobey the law it is naturaly given a penalty or punishment rather they are ignorant or lazy, the master is trying to explain to prepare always themselves in time of needs, Lord Jesus is telling his disciples to be always prepared or us to be always prepared for the second coming of the christ.

So that the disciples work hard later to evangelise the whole world without failure of laziness, disobedience and ignorance.

He is clarifying values in the kingdom of Heaven - these are the values that God desires in his servants. I think that he used contrast to make sure we understood the choices before us about what kind of people we are to be - what kind of person I am to be.

Watchfulness

"Let your waist be girded and your lamps burning. Be like men watching for their lord, when he returns from the marriage feast; that, when he comes and knocks, they may immediately open to him. Blessed are those servants, whom the lord will find watching when he comes. Most certainly I tell you, that he will dress himself, and make them recline, and will come and serve them. They will be blessed if he comes in the second or third watch, and finds them so. But know this, that if the master of the house had known in what hour the thief was coming, he would have watched, and not allowed his house to be broken into. Therefore be ready also, for the Son of Man is coming in an hour that you don't expect him."
Peter said to him, "Lord, are you telling this parable to us, or to everybody?"
The Lord said, "Who then is the faithful and wise steward, whom his lord will set over his household, to give them their portion of food at the right times? Blessed is that servant whom his lord will find doing so when he comes. Truly I tell you, that he will set him over all that he has. But if that servant says in his heart, 'My lord delays his coming,' and begins to beat the menservants and the maidservants, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken, then the lord of that servant will come in a day when he isn't expecting him, and in an hour that he doesn't know, and will cut him in two, and place his portion with the unfaithful. That servant, who knew his lord's will, and didn't prepare, nor do what he wanted, will be beaten with many stripes, but he who didn't know, and did things worthy of stripes, will be beaten with few stripes. To whoever much is given, of him will much be required; and to whom much was entrusted, of him more will be asked.
