*************************************************
The Parable of the Bags of Gold (or Talents)
************************************
Is this about money in the Church?
Why is Jesus using such preposterous big amounts of money?
Was not the one talent servant just prudent?
Why is the reaction of his master so violent?
Is this parable about heaven and hell?
Which deeper reality of the Kingdom of God is highlighted here?
What is for us the meaning of the eagerness of the two and five talents servants?
Do they want to prove themselves (maybe yes?).
Is this an invitation to take risks (dangerous?).
Is the parable an exhortation to extend ourselves (scary?).
Is this about joy in service or fear?
We often wonder how we can get closer to God, don’t you think?
