    The Story of How Faith Is to Be Used
    Ephesians 2:8-10 (GNT)

    Cannot be saved by works!
    God will not love you more because of what you do or don’t do!
    Good works do come out of our love for Jesus and our faith in Him. 
    Matthew 25:14-30 (ESV)
     
    Differences Between the Fractured and Real Parables
    ● The difference in the amounts given to each servant wasn’t based on how the master felt about the servants
    ● The second servant didn’t waste the money, faith not the amount was the issue
    ● The master didn’t say good job to the third servant
    ● The master was not pleased with all his servants
    Three Spiritual Truths About Faith
    Spiritual Truth #1: Faith Brings Purpose

    Colossians 1:16 (TM)
     
    Spiritual Truth #2: Faith Does Not Mean We All Have the Same Responsibilities

    Hebrews 11:6 (NET)
    This parable is about what we do with the gift of faith we have been given. Who is your faith in?
