Title: HIS LIFE 48
Tags:
Blog Entry: Today's writing is based on Matthew 25:1-23: Then the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins, who took their lamps, and went out to meet the bridegroom.  Five of them were wise, and five were foolish.  They that were foolish took their lamps, but took no oil with them:  The wise took oil in their vessels along with their lamps. While the bridegroom waited, they all became drowsy and slept.  At midnight there was a cry made, Look, the bridegroom comes, go out to meet him. All the virgins rose up, and trimmed their lamps.  The foolish ones said to the wise, Give us some of your oil, for our lamps have gone out. The wise ones answered, saying, no, because there is not enough for us and you: you go, rather, to them that sell, and buy oil for yourselves.  And when they went to buy, the bridegroom ame; and those that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. The other virgins came afterwards, saying, Lord, Lord, open up to us. He answered and said, I say truthfully, I don't know you. Keep watch, for you don't know the day nor the hour when the Son of man comes. Again the kingdom of heaven is like a man travelling in to a far country, who called his own servants, giving and trusting them with his own goods.  One he gave five talents, to another he gave two, and to another he gave one; to every an according to his ability; and right away left on his journey. The one that received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made another five talents.  The one who received two talents did the same, and made another two.  The one who received one talent went and dug a hole in the earth, and hid his lord's money. After a long time away, the lord of those servants came, and reckoned with them.  So the one that had received five talents came and brought another five talents, saying Lord, you delivered to me five talents: look, I have gained five talents more. His lord said, Well done, my good and faithful servant: you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things: come with me and celebrate with your master. The one who had received two talents came and said Lord, you delivered to me two talents: look, I have gained two more talents. His lord said to him, Well done, my good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things: come with me and celebrate with your master.
