(37) The 3 servants

Later, Jesus sat on the slopes of the Mount of Olives.
Jesus told his disciples,
"Again, the kingdom of heaven can be illustrated
by the story of a man goin on a trip
to be crowned king and then return.
Before he left,
He called his servants and gave them money to invest
while he was gone.
The servant who received the 5 bags of gold
invested right away and doubled it.
The servant who received 2 bags of gold also
went right to work and doubled it.
But the servant who received the 1 bag of gold
dug a hole in the ground and hid the master's money
for safekeeping.
After a long time their master returnd from his trip
and summoned his servants.
The master was full of praise
when he heard his first 2 servants had doubled the money.
But he threw the last servant away
and gave what he had
to the one with the 5 bags of gold."
