The Point: Invest Your Talents

Put your talents to work. For the Colson Center for Christian Worldview, I’m John Stonestreet with The Point.

What exactly did the servant who was given 5 talents in Jesus’ parable actually do to get a 100% return?

That’s not a financial question. It’s a question for anyone who wishes to leverage and grow the gifts God has given them.

If you’re serious about finding the answer to that question, I want to invite you to come study with us at the Colson Center as a Colson Fellows. For nine months, you’ll read the best books, participate in teleconferences with the best thinkers, and attend three residencies with the best teachers of Christian worldview: people like Jim Daly, Joni Eareckson Tada, Glenn Sunshine, and many more. And folks, I just got back from one of this year’s residencies in Orlando: It was spectacular.

Chuck Colson founded this program, “to equip serious Christians to think seriously about all of life’s issues and to become change agents to strengthen the church and in turn the culture.”

That, my friends, is a good investment. Come to Colsonfellows.org to apply.

    The only way to get returns like that is to speculate on long and dangerous ventures in far off places. Anything closer to home would have been shredded by arbitrage. There were routes at the time that were tricky enough to get something like that on. Also the second slave may well have bought into the same venture.
