Sep 4 9.25 “A nobleman went to a distant country to receive a kingdom and return.1 Before leaving, he gave his ten servants ten pounds telling them, Trade with the money till I return. But his subjects hated him and sent a delegation after him, saying they didnt want him as their king. He was made king, however, and on returning he called his servants to account for their profits.

The first one reported, Master, your pound gained ten. He replied, “Good! Because of your faithfulness in a small matter, take charge of ten cities.

The second reported, Master, your pound gained five His master said, Take charge of five cities. Another reported, Master, see your pound! I put it away in a napkin. I feared your hardness. You extort what you dont invest and reap where you dont sow.
