Posts Tagged ‘bags of gold’


This year, I am going to post creative challenges from God’s Word, the idea is simple, read the passage and create something based on it.

In this vein of gifts and talents consider

Matthew 25:14-30

It’s called the parable of the bags of gold, but I like the old name better, the parable of the talents. It’s an illustration Jesus gave to help believers to understand faithful service to God using our gifts (among other things). The master, representing God, invests some of his wealth (talents) in His servants… US! The reaction of the servants to this gift is telling for us all. How would you interpret it to the people around you? How are you investing what God has invested in you?
