Parable of the Talents

Text: Matthew 25:14-30

What are Talents? – abilities, resources, opportunities

How Do We Increase our Talents?

  • Abilities – 2 Timothy 2:15; Hebrews 5:11-14
  • Resources – Ephesians 4:28
  • Opportunities – Colossians 4:6; 1 Peter 2:12

Right & Wrong Attitudes

Failure to Use our Talents Affects Others

  • Alien sinners will not be taught – Romans 10:14-17
  • Fellow Christians will be discouraged – Hebrews 3:12-13
  • Those who are working will have a greater amount of work to do

Consequences

  • Those who work/grow – reward
  • Those who do nothing – punishment
