Thanksgiving and the Parable of the Talents

It’s not about the money; it’s about our relationship with God”

On Sunday, I preached on the Parable of the Talents, which is about our relationship with God. At some point during the Thanksgiving holiday, I invite you to reflect on the following three points of that relationship:

  1. Receive with joy and gratitude the gifts God gives you.
  2. Use them enthusiastically in service of others and all of God’s Creation.
  3. Treasure and trust your relationship with God; let God love you, lead and guide you.
