  1. 1. the meaning of the parable of the talents is:
    the ruler is god
    the servants are us
    the talents of money are our physical talents
    so god gave us talents and now we must use them in are daily lives.
    like if we are good at speaking and someone else is good at music you use those talents and contribute to the meeting or youth groups like this one.
    2. this parable teaches that god will reward us if we use our talents in a good way.
    if we don’t we will be punished and get nothing.
    3. he give each of us different amounts of because he gave us as much as we can handle it. not to much and not to little.
    4. a lazy servant was stop because he didn’t try and was to busy doing different things.
    5. it teaches us that if we do what god wants us to we will be rewarded and if we don’t do what he says that we will be thrown out of the kingdom and be punished where there is morning and washing of teeth.
    6. i think he did this because he was the most experienced and was the most faithful.
    7. yes this was fair because he was the most experienced and also the most worthy.
    8. i think jesus said this parable because he was trying to make a point that we must be using are talents so when jesus comes back he will reward us and not throw us out like the bad servant and not get thrown out and get punished for being bad.

  2. 1 you will be rewarded if you are diligent
    2god is a giving God but also can get sad/angry if you disobey
    3 to see how people can handle different trials
    4 he thought he didn’t get enough I.e nothing
    5 maybe because he knew their own skills
    6 yes he would give them all a reward anyway
    7 he teaches us to not rely on knowledge but inishitive.

  3. 1. “What is the meaning of the Parable of the Talents?”
    We are the servants and God has given us multiple gifts or in other words talents and he wants us to use them because he didn’t create us to hide in corners of a room and sulk he wanted us to have a happy life and to use our talents wisely. Also he wants us to use our talents so that we can buy clothes that he gives us and to go onto the streets and tell the beggars about our beautiful, lovely kind and caring Mesiah and how he raises the dead and heals the blone ect.
    2.What does this parable teach us about God and his character?
    It tells us that God is kind and will always look after us nomatter what but the parable of the talents is a sign that God wants to test us and to not be jealous.
    3. Why do you think the master gives the men different amounts of talents?
    To test us and to see how we would react he wants to see if we would be jealous but if you think about it we should never really be jealous of what other people say or if that have something that we rally want.
    4.What keeps the lazy servant from multiplying his talents?
    The lazy servant does not multiply his talents bcause he is to busy burying them and giving them away.
    5. How does this parable teach us about the kingdom?
    This parable teaches us about the kindom because in Matt 25:14-30 it tells us that the servants that had 5 and 2 doubled theres and pleased the Lord but the servant whom got one said “Lord I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine.” This means that those who do the will of God will enter into the kingdom we can all be like the good and faithfull servants and do what God loves us to do.
    6. Why do you think the master gave the one talent to the servant who had ten?
    I think he gave one talent to the servant who had ten because it was a test of not to be jealous and to do what the right thing to do is.
    7. Was this fair? Why?
    I think it was fair because the Lord puts all and every one of us in trials to prepair us for the kingdom and when Jesus comes back.
    8. What keeps the lazy servant from multiplying his talents?
    He is trieing to tell us that when he goes away use the talents that God has given you because that is one of the best ways to please God and Jesus the messiah and king.

  4. 1. The meaning of the parible of the talents is that what God gives you try to make double
    2. God expectes us not to hide away our talents and what he has given us but to make more
    3. It does not matter how much you get because you can make just as much as everyone else
    4. The lazy servant was scared and angry because he had not been given as much money and did not want to lose any of it
    5. If we do not use what God has given us it makes us look and sound ungrateful
    6. ?????????????????????????????????????????
    7. I think it was fair because the lazy servant did not deserve Gods blessing
    8. The story is about you should not hide you’re talents but try to word harder to earn more

  5. .you shuold share your talents with everyone and gods blessings to you and other people to not keep them to yourself.
    .Godloves someone who shares their gifts with other people.
    .Because everyone has their own character and different abilities.
    .He didnt do anything he buried his talents and didnt do anything.
    .God rewards people who work with the blessings he’s given them.
    .He rewarded the servant who tried the hardest.
    .yes,because he worked with what god had blessed him with.
    .To show your talents and not hide it away from everyone.
