THE PARABLE OF THE TALENTS
The topics of judgment, reward and punishment are rather unpopular in Christian circles, and not often preached from the pulpit. But they are important in Jesus’ teaching. In the Parable of the Talents, Jesus taught that while He is away, the believer must do the work of the kingdom faithfully and diligently, knowing that at the return of his Lord, his work will be greatly rewarded or severely judged. Let us read this parable, the Parable of the Talents, in Matthew 25:14-30.
