Remember what Jesus taught in his important parables. Like: The Talents (Mt 25:14-30)
Many are the lessons that can be gleaned from this parable of “The Talents”. The main lesson is simple: Be productive where the Lord has given you ability and opportunity!
Teaching God's love, mercy, forgiveness and grace.
Including declaring the terrors of the Lord, and of hell, and of everlasting damnation to the non-believers.
THE PARABLE APPLIED. By Mark A. Copeland.
1. Main points of the parable: a. Be faithful in using the opportunities for service which the Lord has given us b. Diligence is rewarded; negligence is punished
2. Other points to be noted (adapted from Hendricksen’s commentary): a. Whatever we have, whether opportunities or abilities, belongs to God; we may possess, but God owns; we are simply stewards - Mt 25:14.
