The five foolish virgins

(Matt. 25:1-13) If you’ve made Christianity to be all about money and “blessings” then you’re probably one of the five foolish virgins who will be left behind.

    Quite a ‘big’ price to be paid for foolishness, carelessness, for not being ready. Lk 21:36

    If Esau could sell his birthright for a pot of stew then its easy for professing Christians to similarly sell their birthright in Christ for a few measly bucks, for the covetous or the sexually unclean man has no inheritance in Christ, for he has chosen something other than Christ as his god and he serves that god.

    Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God. Those by the wayside are they that hear; then comes the devil, and takes away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved. Those on the rock are they, who, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, who for awhile believe, and in time of temptation fall away. And that which fell among thorns are they, who, when they have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to maturity. But that on the good ground are they, who in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.
    (Luke 8:11-15)
