Put Your Gifts to Work

Jesus told a story about a rich man who gave his servants large sums of money and went away.

Two of them trusted their master and desired to please him. They worked hard and wisely and eventually doubled the money they had been given.

The other servant despised and feared the master. He buried his treasure in a safe place and gave it back when the master returned.

How the master responded to each of his servants is intended to give us a preview of how Jesus will judge our efforts. For some of his listeners it was a warning. For others it was a word of encouragement and hope.

This sermon focuses on encouragement.
