Parables: The Talents

How can we make the most of the gifts that we have?

 

In this parable Jesus speaks about a rich man going away and leaving his servants in charge of his money. What will the servants do? Will they try to invest or will they just hide it under their bed? Christians believe that, like the servants in this story, we have all been given gifts. Like the servants, we too can decide whether we use them or not. But what happens when we make those choices? Watch the film to find out. After, think about:

  • What does this parable teach Christians?
  • How might they apply it to their lives?

You can read about this parable in Matthew 25:14-30.
