My husband Brian continued the Storytellers series with the parable of the ten minas (also known as the parable of the ten talents). In this parable, Jesus talked about a king that gave ten minas (about 3 months wages) to ten servants. While he was away, the servants were instructed to use their mina to make a profit. When the king returned, the first servant had earned 10x more, the second servant earned 5x more, and the other one earned nothing b/c he hid his mina in a handkerchief.
I always like how he gives us practical ways to carry this out --- like how to invest our time by spending time with things eternal:
1. God (prayer)
2. God's Word
3. God's People
I love how he closed with an encouraging and challenging message to be a good investor of everything that comes from God. It was especially hopeful to hear that it's not too late to start today. Even if you've spent your last week, month, or years without investing your lives for something greater (God's Kingdom) --- if you still have a breath ---- you can make a difference. God can still use you.
