Matthew 25:14-15 (NIV) “…The Kingdom of God will be like a man going on a journey, who called his
servants and entrusted his property to them. To one he gave five talents of money, to another two
talents, and to another one talent, each according to his ability. Then he went on his journey.
A “talent” was literally a bag of silver coins worth more than $1,000. But what was Jesus really
telling us? What labels would you uses to describe what Jesus meant a “talent” to spiritually
2 Corinthians 10:5 (MSG) We use our powerful God-tools for smashing warped philosophies,
tearing down barriers erected against the truth of God, fitting every loose thought and emotion
and impulse into the structure of life shaped by Christ.
1 Corinthians 3:12-13 (AMP) But if anyone builds upon the Foundation [of salvation], whether it be with
gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, the work of each one will become plainly and openly
shown for what it is; for the day of Christ will disclose and declare it, because it will be revealed with fire,
and the fire will test and critically appraise the character and worth of the work each person has done.
In your mind, what do you think is represented as “gold, silver, and precious stones”?
