1. The Parable of the Talent*.
This Parable, like that of the Ten
Virgins, is associated with the second
coming of Christ. In both Instances
there is evident an tmpreparedness on
the part of the people. In the first ;
case there is failure of the inward life; I
in the second, there is failure to nse I
the gifts which have been entrusted to j
them. The first was failure to watch; j
the second was failure to work. By j
talents Is meant, the gifts which God j
has entrusted to his servants. It may !
be natural endowments, special enduein
en ts of the Spirit, or it may be the
gospel of Jestis Christ. With reference
to these talents note: i
>. Their distribution (tv. 14, 35). j
(1) A sovereign one. The servants
belong to the Lord as well as the |
money. (2) An intelligent one. The :
distribution was made on the bads of !
the ability of e=ch servant. The reason
one man received one talent was
because the lord know-that he would
be Incapable of using two or five. (S)
A purposeful one. The talents were
given to be traded with. They were
not given for the servant's own use. j
but stock-in-trade for the enrichment!
of the master- i
2. Employment of the talents (w.
16-18).
In this employment all the servants
recognized that the talents did not be- '
long to theou The two-talented man ;
and the five-talented man put their
talents to Use. which resulted is a .
large Increase. It la always true that j
the right use of talents increases them.
Ihe one-talented man bid his In the
earth. The unmistakable sign of the
one-talented man is that he is hiding
Ms talent- The two-talented and fivetalented
men are always busy.
8. The accounting for the talents
cw. la-sO).
(1) Its certainty. There is a day
Mining when the lord's servants shall
give an account to him for the use they
lave made of their talents. (2) The
time of. This Is at the coming of the
Lord. Those who are using their taints
will rejoice when the Lord comes
list they may present unto him their
:alents with increase. But the onetalented
man will have fear and dread
igainst that day- (8) The Judgments
umounced. to the faithful there was
reward. This reward consisted of
jislse: "Wdone;"promotion: "ruler
>vcr many things" and entrance "upon
he joy of the Lord." For the faithless
me there ^as awful punishment which
ionslsted of reproach?"slothful;" beng
stripped and cast into outer dark*
less.
II. Cfi*raetsrlatica of the 8ubjeeta
if the Kingdom (Matt. 5:1-12).
These beatitudes are connected with
ach other with the strictest order of
oglcal sequence. They set forth the
haracterlstlcs at those who are subects
of the kingdom. They fan into
bree groups; tour in the first, three in
he second, and two in the third.
3. Poverty of spirit (v. 3). To be
oor in spirit does not mean to be
rttbout money, but to come to the
nd of self, to he in a state of ebeo
it* spirits beggary, awing no paw
r to alter Us condition or make himelf
better.
2. A profound grief became of tide
pirltnai bankruptcy ( - 4). Tbe

4. An Intense longing to conform to
tbe ten of the ^ ? >][* ? (r. 6}. Having
received the rlghteonsness of
Christ as a free gift; every desire of
his scml Is to be filled with rfgbteons5.
Mercifnl (v. 7). At this stage the
subjects of the kingdom take on the
character of the King. Christ was
mercifnl; Us followers will be Ekewlse.
6. Pnrlty at heart (v. 8). This heart
parity begins by having oar hearts
sprinkled from an evil conscience with
the blood of Christ. and la maintained
by living In fellowship with him. Those i
who have pore hearts can aee God everywhere.
7. Peacemakers (v. 9). Those who
have been reconciled to God by Christ
not only Eve In peace, but diffuse peace.
&. Suffering for Christ's sake (v. 10).
The world hated Christ and crucified
him. Those who live for him shall
suffer persecution (H Timothy 8:12).
9. Suffer reproach (v. 11). It means
suffering under lj|R charges. In anch
case we shell gifey In It because it
brings great reward in heaven.
