Mount Vernon Presbyterian School kicked off the new year at convocation as students from the Class of 2016 all the way to the Class of 2030 gathered to hear Head of School Dr. Jacobsen’s message: Be a Multiplier!
Sharing the parable of the talents as told by Jesus in Matthew 25, Dr. Jacobsen encouraged students, parents, and faculty to multiply the blessings and talents we’ve been given in the coming 180 days (177 now for those counting).
You + Curiosity = Multiplier
You + Desired Result = Multiplier
You + Others = Multiplier
You + God = Multiplier
14 “Again, it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants and entrusted his wealth to them. 15 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. 16 The man who had received five bags of gold went at once and put his money to work and gained five bags more. 17 So also, the one with two bags of gold gained two more. 18 But the man who had received one bag went off, dug a hole in the ground and hid his master’s money.”
