Use It, Or Lose It!

This week in Sr. High OTTAGETTU, we will look @ the final parable for our four-week series, the parable of the talents in Matthew 25. Jesus used this story to teach the importance of using the gifts, talents, & resources God gives us. 

Encourage your student this week to find ways to honor God by using a particular skill, gift, or talent. Talk about the “menu” of career options. Discuss how your teenager could serve right now using those gifts, talents, & skills. Share what you loved to do when you were a teenager & how you’ve used your skills & passions to honor God. 
Here are a couple of questions related to our discussion that could help fuel your conversation:

  • What are some blessings, resources, spiritual gifts, & talents God has placed in your life? 
  • How does giving our best honor God? How does not giving our best dishonor God?

Thank you for your teenager’s involvement in Sr. High OTTAGETTU. We hope that you continue exploring the parables & never stop telling stories of how Jesus is working in your lives!
