Parable of the Ten Virgins

Jesus told His disciples a story about 10 young women. They were waiting for a wedding feast to begin. Five of them were wise and five of them were foolish.


The bridegroom was coming at night, but the five foolish women had no oil for their lamps. They went away to buy oil. While they were gone, the feast began. When they came back, they called out, “Open the door for us!” But someone inside called, “I don’t know you”. So they could not go into the feast. This story has a special meaning. It is this. Jesus will return at the end of time. He will come suddenly. Some people will be ready. They will enter the Kingdom of God with Him. Others will be left outside forever. Jesus said, “Therefore, keep watch. You do not know the time of my return.” Matthew 25:1-13 http://globalrecordings.net
