Matthew 25:20-21 ” The man who had received the five talents brought the other five. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘You entrusted me with five talents. See, I have gained five more.’ His master replied, ‘Well done good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things. I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’ “
The Scene: A large gift box–represents God’s rewards to us when we do His will. The purple color surrounding the gift from God is symbolic of the Holy Spirit who encapsulates the gift.
Numbers 18:6-7a “I myself have selected your fellow Levites from among the Israelites as a gift to you, dedicated to the Lord to do the work at the Tent of Meeting. But only you and your sons may serve as priests in connection with everything at the altar and inside the curtain. I am giving you the service of the priesthood as a gift.”
When we are given something to do by the Lord (a task or ministry) He gives us a gift; when we do as He commands we are rewarded. God has given us His heart, His One and Only Son–who has sent His Holy Spirit– and that is all we need to be equipped for doing God’s will.
John 14:15-17 “If you love me, you will obey what I command. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor to be with you forever–the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you.”
