Bible: Matthew 24:45-51

The Faithful and Wise Slave

24:45Who then is the faithful and wise slave, 1  whom the master has put in charge of his household, to give the other slaves 2  their food at the proper time? 24:46 Blessed is that slave whom the master finds at work 3  when he comes. 24:47 I tell you the truth, 4  the master 5  will put him in charge of all his possessions. 24:48 But if 6  that evil slave should say to himself, 7 My master is staying away a long time,’ 24:49 and he begins to beat his fellow slaves and to eat and drink with drunkards, 24:50 then the master of that slave will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he does not foresee, 24:51 and will cut him in two, 8  and assign him a place with the hypocrites, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
