Bible: Luke 19:20-26

19:20 Then another 1  slave 2  came and said, ‘Sir, here is 3  your mina that I put away for safekeeping 4  in a piece of cloth. 5  19:21 For I was afraid of you, because you are a severe 6  man. You withdraw 7  what you did not deposit 8  and reap what you did not sow.’ 19:22 The king 9  said to him, ‘I will judge you by your own words, 10  you wicked slave! 11  So you knew, did you, that I was a severe 12  man, withdrawing what I didn’t deposit and reaping what I didn’t sow? 19:23 Why then didn’t you put 13  my money in the bank, 14  so that when I returned I could have collected it with interest?’ 19:24 And he said to his attendants, 15 Take the mina from him, and give it to the one who has ten.’ 16  19:25 But 17  they said to him, ‘Sir, he has ten minas already!’ 18  19:26 I tell you that everyone who has will be given more, 19  but from the one who does not have, even what he has will be taken away. 20
