Matthew 25:14 to 30 The Money in Trust or The Talents Parables of Jesus
Class Discussion: As a whole class we viewed the parable about The Money in Trust and we observed that the following themes were important: responsibility, trust, remaining idle and not working to improve oneself. We made the connection to today's world how important money is and how as individuals we are part of the economy. To remain idle in the modern economy does no benefit. Examples of work and the gift of work were discussed. Some people in our society are sick or unemployed and these are examples of pressures put on us as a community to help those in need and not punish them for being idle. The virtues of perseverance, faith, community, talents and hardships were observed.
