Say It!

For I will not dare to speak of any of those things which Christ hath not wrought by me, to make the Gentiles obedient, by word and deed,

Equally Faithful

Many times in the Word of God, Jesus talked in parables. He told stories. And of course the story had a moral to it. One parable is found in Matthew 25. It is referred to as “The Parable of the Talents”.

There are a lot of different views on the value of the talents given, but all seem to agree that it was a lot of money. One employee was given five talents, another was given two talents, and the third employee was given one talent.

I see it firsthand when visiting a store: items are being put up or taken down, shelves are being adjusted or removed, and activity is always going on preparing for the next season or holiday.
