Pentecost 24 – "The Parable of the Talents" – The parables of Jesus are intentionally disturbing. In this one, a master gives three of his slaves, or servants, some money before he goes away on a journey; and on his return he commends them of chastises them according to what they had done with the money, given to them to be used, celebrated and multiplied. But the master in this story is very different from the God revealed in the life of Jesus. The third servant's downfall came from his complete misunderstanding of his master – the servant was terrified of the man. How do we see God? God is revealed in the life of Jesus, and our perception of God has a significant impact on the way we see ourselves.
Matther 25: 14-30
