Merry Christmas - 2013.
« on: December 25, 2013, 10:01:14 AM »

Today is Merry Christmas, the day the Son of God, was born in Bethlehem more than two thousand years ago.

I wish all our Forum members, on this day, a happy and prosperous and healthy life with more and more spiritual progress.

The story of Ten Servants from Luke 19:

Verses 11 to 26:

The people were still listening to Jesus as he was getting close to Jerusalem.  Many of them thought that God's kingdom
would soon appear, and Jesus told them this story:

A prince once went to a foreign country to be crowned king and then to return. But before leaving, he called in ten servants
and gave each of them some money.  He told them:'Use this to earn more money until I get back.'

But the people of his country hated him, and they sent messengers to the foreign country to say, 'We don't want this man
to be our king.'

After the prince had been made king, he returned and called in his servants. He asked them how much they had earned
with the money they had been given.

The first servant came and said, 'Sir, with the money you gave me I have earned ten times as much.'

'That is fine, my good servant!' the king said, 'Since you have shown that you can be trusted with a small amount,
you will be given ten cities to rule.'

The second one came and said, 'Sir with the money you gave me, I have earned five times as much.'

The king said, 'You will be given five cities.'

Another servant came and said, 'Sir, here is your money. I kept it safe in a handkerchief.'

'You are a hard man, and I was afraid of you.  You take what is not yours, and you harvest crops you didn't plant.'

'You worthless servant!' the king told him. 'You have condemned yourself by what you have just said. You knew that I am
a hard man, taking what is not mine and harvesting what I have not planted. Why didn't put my money in the bank?  On
my return I could have had the money together with interest.'

Then he said to some other servants standing there, 'Take the money away from him and give it to the servant who earned
ten times as much.'

But they said, 'Sir, he already has ten times as much!'

The king replied, 'Those who have something will be given more.  But everything  will be taken away from those who don't
have anything.
