Lead into the Parable of the Talents In the
first thirteen versus of Matthew 25 is contained
the Parable of The Ten Virgins. The main lesson
gleaned from that parable is to be prepared and
to be watchful anticipating the Lords return.
In light of that teaching, the Parable of the
Talents teaches us both to be working while we
are watching for the Lord. In addition, as we
are told in the parable there will be a reckoning
of accounts upon His return.
