Teachings and Parables

With His time of earth coming to an end, Christ teaches as many as He can. He teaches the crowds at the temple and at the mount of olives through sermons and parables. Some of His teachings on this day include:

  • The Parable of the Ten Virgins.

  • The Widow’s Mite

  • Love One Another


Select one or more of the passages below to read as a family.

Love One Another: Mathew 22:35-40
The Parable of the 10 Virgins: Mathew 25:1-13
The Parable of the Talents: Mathew 25: 14-30
Service: Mathew 25: 31-46
The Widow’s Mite: Mark 12:41-44

Insomuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these, ye have done it unto me.


Choose one of the parables. Discuss what it means and how you can apply it to your life. If you wish, you can choose to act it out as a family.

Do an act of service for someone else. Bake a cake or a plate of cookies and leave it on their doorstep. Discuss how doing this made you feel.
