Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
And it came to pass, that when he was returned, having received the kingdom, then he commanded these servants to be called unto him, to whom he had given the money, that he might know how much every man had gained by trading.
and wherefore did you not put my money in bank; and I, at my coming, would have exacted it with interest.'
but he who knew not, and did things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few. And to whomsoever much is given, of him will much be required; and to whomsoever they committed much, of him they will ask the more.
And, calling him, he said to him, 'What is this I hear of you? Render the account of your stewardship; for you can be no longer steward.'
Therefore, the Kingdom of Heaven was likened to a king who wished to make a reckoning with his servants.
And, after a long time, the lord of those servants comes, and makes a reckoning with them.
But you??hy do you judge your brother? or you also??hy do you despise your brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of God.
1 Corinthians 4:1
Let a man so consider us, as servants of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God.
