Jesus often used parables and stories to teach very important lessons. In this message, Pastor Mark takes a look at one of those powerful parables from the book of Matthew, called the parable of the Talents. In the times of Jesus, a talent was a unit of measurement for precious metals like silver and gold. Pastor Mark tells the compelling truths about this parable of the Talents and about what we do with what God has given us.
