“Again, it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants and entrusted his wealth to them. To one he gave five bags of gold, to another two bags, and to another one bag, each according to his ability. Then he went on his journey.Matthew 25: 14-15 (NIV)
Children are much like the gold bags that a master gave to his slaves in Matthew 25:14-15. He gave each of them based on their potential. The “bags of gold” you give your children can be viewed as symbolism for the knowledge and values you impart to them before they leave home to build their own lives.
