1 Sunday, April 12, 2015 Kidzone KG and 1st Grade Small Group TEACHER BIBLE STUDY Parable of the Talents Matthew 25:14-30; Luke 19:11-27 Matthew and Luke both record parables from Jesus. In Matthew 25, Matthew writes about the parable of the talents. Luke 19 accounts for the parable of the minas. Though these parables are similar, they are not identical. Both parables are about a master who gives money to his servants and then goes on a trip. When the master returns, he judges the servants for their faithfulness in their stewardship over what they possessed. As you teach kids this week, focus on the parable of the talents. Jesus was teaching His disciples at the Mount of Olives, east of Jerusalem. The disciples asked Jesus to tell them about the end of time. (See Matt. 24:3.) He told them parables to help them understand what it will be like when the kingdom of heaven comes. Jesus said that the kingdom of heaven will be like a man going on a journey. In this parable, the man is Jesus. Jesus was going to leave earth and return to His Father in heaven. Before the man left, he entrusted certain amounts of money to his servants. The relationship between a master and his servants would have meant that the master still owned the money they were given, and the master would own any interest they made on the money. The first two servants were faithful with the gifts, investing the talents and gaining more not for their own profit, but for the profit of their master. The third servant, however, knew that if he lost any of the money, the master would punish him. And if he gained any money, he wouldn t get to keep it anyway. So he took no risk and buried the money in the ground. When the master returned, he was pleased with the actions of the first two servants, but he punished the servant who did nothing. Jesus parable is a lesson to all believers. Jesus gives us the task of serving God while we wait for His return. We do not sit idly by, afraid of failure, but we serve joyfully for Jesus sake. We eagerly wait for the day we can share in the joy of our Master. Heaven is the joy of knowing, worshiping, and enjoying Jesus forever.

He told them parables, or stories, to help them understand. One day, Jesus was talking about the last day, the day when Jesus will come back to earth. Jesus said that no one knows when that day will happen. Then He told His listeners a parable about three servants. Jesus said, This is what that day will be like. A man was going on a journey. He called his servants to him and gave them each some money. He gave one servant five talents, another servant two talents, and another servant one talent. (Now, a talent was a very large amount of money.) Each man received what the master thought he was able to take care of. Then the man left and went on his journey. The first servant, who had five talents, invested the money right away. Soon, the five talents had earned five more. In the same way, the man who had two talents invested the money and earned two more talents. But the servant who had one talent did not invest his master s money. Instead, he dug a hole in the ground and hid the money in the hole. After a long time, the master came home. He asked his servants what they had done with his money. The servant who had five talents showed the master that he had earned five more talents. Well done, good and faithful servant! the master said. You did a good job looking over a few things, so I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share in my joy! Then the second servant, who had two talents, showed the master that he had earned two more talents. Well done, good and faithful servant! the master said. You did a good job looking over a few things, so I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share in my joy! Then the third servant, who had one talent, brought the master his one talent. The servant said, Master, I know you. You are a difficult man. I was afraid and went off and hid your talent Unit 30 Session 5 Younger Elementary 2

If you know me so well, you should have invested your money with the bankers so that when I returned, I would get my money back with interest. The master took the talent from the servant and gave it to the servant who had 10 talents. The master said, Everyone who uses what they have will get even more, and they will have more than they need. But anyone who wastes what he has will have everything taken away. Throw out this useless servant. Christ Connection: Well done, good and faithful servant! Every believer, as a servant of Christ, has the task of serving God with his or her life. We eagerly wait for the day we can share in the joy of our Master. Heaven is the joy of knowing, worshiping, and enjoying Jesus forever.

Say All the words you found are part of today s Bible story! Our story is a parable Jesus told about a master and three of his servants. Session starter (10 minutes) Option 1: Gifts charades Encourage children to think of something they feel they do well or enjoy doing, such as playing a musical instrument, playing a sport, and so forth. Warn them not to tell anyone what they have in mind. Let kids take turns acting out the thing they do well, allowing the other children to guess. Offer helpful suggestions to actors. Say You all have some amazing abilities and gifts! Those abilities and gifts come from God. Today s big picture question and answer will tell us why God gave you those gifts. Option 2: Hidden coins plastic or choclolate coins Allergy Alert (optional) blindfold (optional) Before class, hide coins in different places around the room. Allow kids to hunt for the hidden coins. Make sure to post an allergy alert if you are using chocolate coins. If time allows, use the coins to play a game of Hot or Cold. Select a child to be the finder. Hide a coin somewhere in the room while the finder is blindfolded or steps outside the door with another leader. When the blindfold is removed or the finder steps back in the room, allow children to help the finder by shouting out hot or cold based on the finder s proximity to the hidden coin. Continue until the finder discovers the coin. Say Good job finding the hidden coins! In our Bible story today, we will hear a parable that Jesus taught. In this parable, a coin was hidden in the ground. Listen closely to find out who hid the coin. Unit 30 Session 5 Younger Elementary 4

Say Jesus used parables to help people understand what the kingdom of heaven is like. Remember in this story we are like the servants and Jesus is like the master. Right now, Jesus is in heaven with His Father. One day, He is going to come back! Jesus did not leave His followers alone here on earth. Jesus has given us His Spirit, abilities, and gifts to serve Him while we wait for His return. The evil servant hid his coin because he was afraid of his master. Is Jesus someone we should be afraid of? (No!) We know our master is kind and good. Jesus loves His servants. We know Jesus loves us because He took the punishment we deserve for our sin. We can use the gifts and abilities God has given us with joy because we know we are serving a master who loves us completely. Show the big picture question slide or poster.

Continue in this manner until the children receive back the sheet with their name at the top. Allow time for children to read and talk about what their friends wrote. Say Why does God give us abilities and gifts? God gives us abilties and gifts to use for Him. We all have different abilities, just like the servants had different amounts of money. Sometimes we have trouble recognizing the abilities God has given us. Asking friends to share what they see in us can help us know how to use our gifts for God.
