Well done,
good and faithful servant;
you have been faithful
over a little,
I will set you over much;
enter into the Joy
of your Master.
[Matthew 25:21]
****************************
"Lord?"

"Yes, child."

"I don't understand what this means."

"Tell Me, child."

"I hear Christians say this,
all the time."

"Tell Me."

"I don't get it."

[PATIENT SILENCE.]

"I 'dunNO, Lord!"

"Ponder it, child."

"Oy; I'm not that smart."

[SMILE.]

"Lord, please!
You're askin' a whole lot, here!
Only YOU know what I got
on my GRE's."

"That doesn't matter, child.
Read It, again."

"Well.....It was part of this
parable about The Talents."

"Go on, precious."

"I STILL don't understand this
part about the third servant
who buried his coin in the
ground - and then, got
punished for it. What was
THAT, about?"

[SILENCE.]

"I don't GET it."

[PATIENT SILENCE.]

"What's wrong with that
guy hiding his master's money?
At least, he didn't spend it.
He could've gone to Walmart
with it."

[PATIENT SILENCE.]

"Lord, what IS my I.Q.,
anyway? It's always
been a big mystery."

"Not to Me, child."

"Oy; don't tell me!"

"Read It again, child.
All of It."

"Wait a minute, Lord;
my cat's laying on It.
(silence)
There; he just got up.
Okay, Lord; just give
me a minute."

[PATIENT SILENCE.]

"It's really LONG, Lord;
It's got too many words.
And, It's hard reading this
with all the red."

[PATIENT SILENCE.]

"You want me to read this
part about the goats, too?"

"Yes, My good student."

"I think this part's kind'a
harsh, Lord."

"It is."

"It's kind'a scary."

[NOD.]

"So.....like, being a
faithful servant is....
uh, following everything
You say?"

"Go on."

"And.....spreading Your Word?
(silence)
Yeah, but suppose we
didn't even get ONE talent, Lord?"

"Read It again, child."

"Okay, Lord."

[NOD.]

"Oh, Lord?"

"Yes, child?"

"Happy Rosh A'Shannah."

[NOD.]
**************************
When the Son of man
comes in His Glory,
and all the angels with Him.....
Before Him will be gathered
all the nations,
and He will separate them....
as a shepherd separates
the sheep from the goats.....
Then the King will say to those
at His right hand,
Come O blessed of My Father,
inherit the kingdom prepared
for you from the foundation
of the world.
[Matthew 25:31-34]
