In Part 1 of the series, “Making the Most of What You’ve Got,” Bishop Stinnett covers two parables of Matthew 25, “The Parable of the Ten Virgins” and “The Parable of the Talents.” In the Parable of the Ten Virgins, (Matthew 25:1-13) all begin their story on equal terms. All are virgins. All are waiting on the return of the bridegroom. All have functioning lamps with oil in them. All slumbered and slept while the bridegroom tarried. But, only five had a sufficient reserve of oil to keep their lights burning until the end. In “The Parable of the Talents,” Matthew 25:14-30, all begin their story on unequal terms. One begins with five talents, another with two and a third with only one talent. Yet, in the end, they were all judged equally, based not so much by what they had but whether they developed their potential to its fullest. So regardless of how you start out in life, what really matters is, Did you make the most of what you got.
