In the Parable of the Talents (Matthew 25:14-30), the author implies that God treats money like love, namely the more you give away and use, the more you keep at the end. In saving for retirement, most of us treat possessions in the opposite way, striving to keep all that we can. Does this parallel your life experience? What does it mean to use faithfully what God has provided? How are we enriched by sharing and impoverished by hording?
