12 So he said, "A prince went to a distant country to be appointed king and then to return. 13 He called ten of his servants and gave them ten coins. He said to them, 'Invest this money until I come back.' 14 But the citizens of his country hated him and sent a delegation to follow him and to announce, 'We don't want this man to rule over us!' 15 "After he was appointed king, the prince came back. He ordered the servants to whom he had given the money to be called so he could find out what they had earned by investing. 16 The first servant came and said, 'Sir, your coin has earned ten more coins.' 17 The king said to him, 'Well done, good servant! Because you have been trustworthy in a very small thing, take charge of ten cities.' 18 "The second servant came and said, 'Your coin, sir, has earned five coins.' 19 The king said to him, 'You take charge of five cities.' 20 "Then the other servant came and said, 'Sir, look! Here's your coin. I've kept it in a cloth for safekeeping 21 because I was afraid of you. You are a hard man. You withdraw what you didn't deposit and harvest what you didn't plant.' 22 The king said to him, 'I will judge you by your own words, you evil servant! You knew, did you, that I was a hard man, and that I withdraw what I didn't deposit and harvest what I didn't plant? 23 Then why didn't you put my money in the bank? When I returned, I could have collected it with interest.' 24 "So the king told those standing nearby, 'Take the coin away from him and give it to the man who has the ten coins.' 25 They answered him, 'Sir, he already has ten coins!' 26 ' I tell you, to everyone who has something, more will be given, but from the person who has nothing, even what he has will be taken away. 27 But as for these enemies of mine who didn't want me to be their king {— bring them here and slaughter them in my presence!'"}

6 Then Jesus told them this parable: "A man had a fig tree that had been planted in his vineyard. He went to look for fruit on it but didn't find any. 7 So he said to the gardener, 'Look here! For three years I have been coming to look for fruit on this tree but haven't found any. Cut it down! Why should it waste the soil?' 8 But the gardener replied, 'Sir, leave it alone for one more year, until I dig around it and fertilize it. 9 Maybe next year it'll bear fruit. If not, then cut it down.'"

1 Corinthians 7:12-15

12 I (not the Lord) say to the rest of you: If a brother has a wife who is an unbeliever and she is willing to live with him, he must not abandon her. 13 And if a woman has a husband who is an unbeliever and he is willing to live with her, she must not abandon him. 14 For the unbelieving husband has been sanctified because of his wife, and the unbelieving wife has been sanctified because of her husband. Otherwise, your children would be unclean, but now they are holy. 15 But if the unbelieving partner leaves, let him go. In such cases the brother or sister is not under obligation. God has called you to live in peace.

Matthew 19:3-9

3 Some Pharisees came to him in order to test him. They asked, "Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any reason?" 4 He answered them, "Haven't you read that the one who made them at the beginning 'made them male and female' 5 and said, 'That is why a man will leave his father and mother and be united with his wife, and the two will become one flesh'? 6 So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore, what God has joined together, man must never separate." 7 They asked him, "Why, then, did Moses order us 'to give a certificate of divorce and divorce her'?" 8 He said to them, "It was because of your hardness of heart that Moses allowed you to divorce your wives. But from the beginning it was not this way. 9 I tell you that whoever divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another woman commits adultery."

1 Corinthians 7:1-40

1 Now about what you asked: "Is it advisable for a man not to marry?" 2 Because sexual immorality is so rampant, every man should have his own wife, and every woman should have her own husband. 3 A husband should fulfill his obligation to his wife, and a wife should do the same for her husband. 4 A wife does not have authority over her own body, but her husband does. In the same way, a husband doesn't have authority over his own body, but his wife does. 5 Do not withhold yourselves from each other unless you agree to do so just for a set time, in order to devote yourselves to prayer. Then you should come together again so that Satan does not tempt you through your lack of self-control. 6 But I say this as a concession, not as a command. 7 I would like everyone to be unmarried, like I am. However, each person has a special gift from God, one this and another that. 8 I say to those who are unmarried, especially to widows: It is good for them to remain like me. 9 However, if they cannot control themselves, they should get married, for it is better to marry than to burn with passion. 10 To married people I give this command (not really I, but the Lord): A wife must not leave her husband. 11 But if she does leave him, she must remain unmarried or else be reconciled to her husband. Likewise, a husband must not abandon his wife. 12 I (not the Lord) say to the rest of you: If a brother has a wife who is an unbeliever and she is willing to live with him, he must not abandon her. 13 And if a woman has a husband who is an unbeliever and he is willing to live with her, she must not abandon him. 14 For the unbelieving husband has been sanctified because of his wife, and the unbelieving wife has been sanctified because of her husband. Otherwise, your children would be unclean, but now they are holy. 15 But if the unbelieving partner leaves, let him go. In such cases the brother or sister is not under obligation. God has called you to live in peace. 16 Wife, you might be able to save your husband. Husband, you might be able to save your wife. 17 Nevertheless, everyone should live the life that the Lord gave him and to which God called him. This is my rule in all the churches. 18 Was anyone circumcised when he was called? He should not try to change that. Was anyone uncircumcised when he was called? He should not get circumcised. 19 Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing, but obeying God's commandments is everything. 20 Everyone should stay in the same condition in which he was called. 21 Were you a slave when you were called? Do not let that bother you. Of course, if you have a chance to become free, take advantage of the opportunity. 22 For the slave who has been called to belong to the Lord is the Lord's free person. In the same way, the free person who has been called is the Messiah's slave. 23 You were bought for a price. Stop becoming slaves of people. 24 Brothers, everyone should stay in the same condition in which he was called by God. 25 Now concerning virgins, although I do not have any command from the Lord, I will give you my opinion as one who by the Lord's mercy is trustworthy. 26 In view of the present crisis, I think it is prudent for a man to stay as he is. 27 Have you become committed to a wife? Stop trying to get released from your commitment. Have you been freed from your commitment to a wife? Stop looking for one. 28 But if you do get married, you have not sinned. And if a virgin gets married, she has not sinned. However, these people will experience trouble in this life, and I want to spare you from that. 29 This is what I mean, brothers: The time is short. From now on, those who have wives should live as though they had none, 30 and those who mourn as though they did not mourn, and those who rejoice as though they were not rejoicing, and those who buy as though they did not own a thing, 31 and those who use the things in the world as though they were not dependent on them. For the world in its present form is passing away. 32 I want you to be free from concerns. An unmarried man is concerned about the things of the Lord, that is, about how he can please the Lord. 33 But a married man is concerned about things of this world, that is, about how he can please his wife, 34 and so his attention is divided. An unmarried woman or virgin is concerned about the affairs of the Lord, so that she may be holy in body and spirit. But a married woman is concerned about the affairs of this world, that is, about how she can please her husband. 35 I'm saying this for your benefit, not to put a noose around your necks, but to promote good order and unhindered devotion to the Lord. 36 If a man thinks he is not behaving properly toward his virgin, and if his passion is so strong that he feels he ought to marry her, let him do what he wants; he isn't sinning. Let them get married. 37 However, if a man stands firm in his resolve, feels no necessity, and has made up his mind to keep her a virgin, he will be acting appropriately. 38 So then the man who marries the virgin acts appropriately, but the man who refrains from marriage does even better. 39 A wife is bound to her husband as long as he lives. But if her husband dies, she is free to marry anyone she wishes, only in the Lord. 40 However, in my opinion she will be happier if she stays as she is. And in saying this, I think that I, too, have God's Spirit.
