To teach the children that God has given them gifts and talents. To teach the children that we have a choice to waste our talents, to use them for ourselves or to use them for his glory.
Matthew 25: 14 - 30
This parable speaks of the importance of using our gifts wisely or we may lose everything. The third servant saw no point in trying to use the talent that his master had given him. He did nothing with it and in the end he lost everything. If we don't take the opportunities that God brings our way to use the gifts He has given us , we also miss out on the blessings. God gives us differing gifts , and some seem more important or more expensive or more popular. In the end what matters is what you do with it. God never demands from people what they are not capable of giving. And if we use our gifts, it will mean more responsibility and more to do. The man who had the littlest talent, felt it wasn't much and wasn't worth doing anything with, but God would rather we do something and fail than to never try at all. In life the only way to keep the talents that God has given us is to use them for what they were intended for. Anything else and they will be lost.
