Title: HIS LIFE 49
Blog Entry: Today's writing is based upon Matthew 2 5 :24-46:  Then t he one that rec e ived the one talent came and said, Lord, I know that you are a hard man, reaping where you had not sown, and gathering where you have not seeded.  I was a fr ai d, and went and hid your talent, here you have back what is yours. His lord answered and said to him,  you evil and lazy servant, you knew that I reap where I have n ot s owed, and gathered where I have not seeded.  You should have put my money with the bankers, and then at my return I should have received my own money with the interest.  Take the talent from him, and give it to the one that has ten talents. For every one that has will be given more, and he will have abunda nce: but the one who has le ss,what he has will be taken away.  Take the unpro fitable servant and cast him into the outer darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. When the Son of man comes in his glory, and the holy angels with him, then he will sit u pon the throne of his glory.  Before him will be all the nations gathered: and he will separate them from one another, as a shepherd divides his sheep f rom the goats.  He will set his sheep on his right, and the goats on his left. Then the King will say to those on his right hand, Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the creation of the world.  For I was hungry, and you gave me food, I was thirsty, ad you gave me something drink, I was a stranger, and you gave me shelter:  I was naked, and you clothed me, I was sick, and you visited me.  I was in prison, and you came to visit me. Then the righteous will answer him, saying, Lord, when did we see you hungry, and fed you? or thirsty, and gave y ou something to drink?  When d id we see you as a stranger and gave you shelter? or naked and clothed you .  Or when d id we see you sick, or in prison, and vis ited you? And the King will answer and say to them, I say to you, As much as you have done it to one of the least of these my brothers ( and sisters), you have done it for me.  For I was hungry , and you gave me no food: I was thirsty, and you gave me nothing to drink: I was a stranger, and you refused me shelter: I was naked, and you refused to clothe me: sick, and in prison, but you didn't visit me. Then they will reply, Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison and didn't do anything to help you?  He will answer them, saying , I say to you, as you have not done it for one of the least of these, you did not do it for me.  And those will go away in to everlasting punishment: but the righteous in to life eternal.
