What Talent!

The Twelfth of Thirteen Sundays in Kingdomtide
Matthew 25:14-30

Nick reads the one-minute introduction.

Reflect carefully upon “The Parable of the Talents.” Was the man with five talents five times more valuable than the man with one? Could it be that he had a high sense of his worth, more open to taking risks, since his self-worth was greater than the man with one talent? Here is the problem. We have transferred not only the name “talent” from money to innate gifts, but we have a society that compares and judges one another by the amount of talent that one has.

How are you when it comes to taking spiritual risks about who you are and how you see yourself? Do you bury your talents with judgments about yourself and comparisons with others that crush the hidden dreams the Lord offers you? The resurrection of Jesus pulls you out from being buried alive! What a talent you have and are, when the Spirit lives within!

Sundays are dedicated to the Gospels from The Revised Common Lectionary.
