Please bring a pencil/pen and a sheet of paper, and a bible to our zoom call 7-8.30pm on Sunday.
This week we are reading the parable of the talents (a unit of money in Jesus’ time or a natural skill). Jesus is speaking about how we are all different, we all have some gifts and skills, and find other things difficult. But Jesus takes his disciples further – who gave you these talents? And why?
Read: Matthew 25:14-30. Jesus was speaking just to his disciples, and we get a better idea of what the parable is about by noticing the subject of the verses before (25:1-13) and after (25:31-46)
Watch: A film of this parable.
Talk: Whose property are the talents at the beginning and end of the parable? What do the actions of the Master make you think about his personality?
What resources or abilities have been given to you, do you think? How are you using them?
If you struggle to think of any right now, pray with God and ask God to show you the gifts and resources that God has given you.
Make: If you have a spare picture frame, or a notebook, decorate a piece of paper to go in/onto it with space in the middle to write our memory verse on check out this example
God bless your week!
