This Friday our message series on the parables, “Did Jesus Say That?” concludes with the Parable of the Talents. This week our topic, Making the Most of What You Got examines Matthew 25:14-30 to see what Jesus did say about being good stewards of all we have been given.
In today’s day and age, we have more choices than ever where we can invest money.
We can invest in money markets, CDs, stocks, bonds, real estate, mutual funds…the list goes on and on.
Each investment has its own risk and reward relationship. The more that you are willing to risk your original investment or principle, the greater return you’ll be expecting.
The inverse is true as well.
Bottom line: no matter what investment vehicle you choose, you always want to get the biggest Return on Investment possible, right?
Did you know that God is looking for a Return on Investment in your life?
Parable of the Talents
When Jesus taught the Parable of the Loaned Money (a.k.a. the Parable of the Talents), he caught people’s attention.
People wanted to know what the Kingdom of Heaven would be like. He explained that our lives were a stewardship and we would one day give an account of our own Return on Investment.
Join us early this Friday at Cabernet Steakhouse on Windward Pkwy in Alpharetta where we’ll dive deep into Jesus’ teaching on stewardship. Doors will open at 6:30 am for coffee, donuts, and fellowship we will start promptly at 7:00 am.
Hope to see you there and bring a friend!

We had several requests to extend the Towel Drive drop off one more Friday so men who missed last week can participate.
Our goal was to provide 300+ towels to the
Salvation Army of Metro Atlanta’s Red Shield Shelter. This will go a long way to help meet the needs of families staying at the shelter.
Towels can be dropped off in the lobby at Cabernet. Thanks again!
