The Parable of the Unforgiving Servant (also known as Ungrateful Servant, Unmerciful Servant, or Wicked Servant but not to be confused with the parable of the Two Debtors) is a parable of Jesus which appears in the Gospel of Matthew.According to Matthew 18:21–35 it is important to forgive others as we are forgiven by God, as illustrated by the negative example of the unforgiving servant. The Parable of the Weeds Explained. 36 Then he left the crowd and went into the house. His disciples came to him and said, “Explain to us the parable of the weeds in the field.”. 37 He answered, “The one who sowed the good seed is the Son of Man. 38 The field is the world, and the good seed stands for the people of the kingdom. The weeds are the people of the evil one, 39 and the enemy ... Matthew 19:16-26 We see a very polite, respectful, and eager young man who leaves Christ and goes away sorrowful. Why? The story makes it clear that he is young, and Luke tells us he is a ruler (), possibly a magistrate or a kind of Justice of the Peace.In the parallel account in Mark, we are told that the young man came "running" up to Christ and "knelt" before him (), indicating a sense of ... The Parable of the Pearl (also called the Pearl of Great Price) is one of the parables of Jesus.It appears in Matthew 13:45–46 and illustrates the great value of the Kingdom of Heaven.. This is the penultimate parable in Matthew 13, coming just before the Parable of the Dragnet.It immediately follows the Parable of the Hidden Treasure, which has a similar theme. “The butterfly dream, in my interpretation, is an analogy drawn from our own familiar inner life of what cognitive process is involved in the process of self-transformation. It serves as a key to understanding what the whole of the Chuang-tzu is about by providing an example of a mental transformation or awakening experience with which we are all highly familiar: the case of waking up from a ... A parable is, literally, something “cast alongside” something else. Jesus’ parables were stories that were “cast alongside” a truth in order to illustrate that truth. His parables were teaching aids and can be thought of as extended analogies or inspired comparisons. The Parable of the Great Banquet is found in Luke 14:15-24. It is similar to the Parable of the Wedding Feast (Matthew 22:1-14), but with some significant differences. The story in Luke’s Gospel was told at a dinner that Jesus attended. Jesus had just healed a man with dropsy and taught a brief lesson on serving others. The Parable of the Great Banquet (). 15 When one of those at the table with him heard this, he said to Jesus, “Blessed is the one who will eat at the feast in the kingdom of God.” (16 Jesus replied: “A certain man was preparing a great banquet and invited many guests. 17 At the time of the banquet he sent his servant to tell those who had been invited, ‘Come, for everything is now ... The Parable of the Oranges. There was a young man who had ambitions to work for a company because it paid very well and was very prestigious. He prepared his résumé and had several interviews.
2021.10.24 14:52 Pleronomicon The great spiritual resignation (a parable).
Imagine for a moment a house built on a hill in an enchanted forest. The occupants of this house are good people. They respect the land and the natural order of the general habitat. They live off of the land and give back when they can. There is a relationship of mutual love and respect between the household and the forest life. Things are good.
Then one day, the occupants of the house move out, and the new people move in, who lack respect for the very environment upon which they depend. They pollute the land, overhunt the wildlife, treat the animals with cruelty, and simply do not appreciate what they have, at all. This goes on to the point that the wildlife have simply moved on to a more hospitable environment.
Now the locals warned these people constantly, to respect the forest, lest the forest takes back its blessings, but being the fools they are, the new occupants laugh it off.
So one day, the trees conspire together: "Let us uproot ourselves the next time the rains come at mid-night and the soil becomes soft. Together we shall find a new home, where the land is respected, and the soil is good to our roots."
Thus the trees agree and wait for the opportune moment, and finally, the rainstorms come at mid-night with loud, terrible thunder. It softens the soil so that their roots easily free themselves, and the thunder covers the march of the enchanted trees, while the fools sleep in their drunkenness. The trees have freed themselves, and the Spirit has empowered their roots to become as legs, so that they could find a new home.
The forest has withdrawn its already alienated blessings, and with the tree roots no longer there to hold the earth together, the rains wash the fools and their house of vanities away...no one around to witness the calamity, no one to remember the fools who thought they owned the world.
For anyone who lives a Spirit filled life, seeking first the righteousness of God, you are the trees. As God blesses you, you grow strong and you share your blessings with your environment. Your branches provide shade to the wildlife, and homes to squirrels and birds. Your roots, together with the roots of the other trees hold the ground together, so that land dwellers can build their homes in stability.
The moral of the story: The world needs the righteous man more than the righteous man needs the world. Do not cast your pearls to the swine, when you know from experience that it will be trampled. All you have to do is move on, and the ground will be washed out from underneath the exploiters of the world, as they sleep.
If you notice that your presence is enabling the exploiters to continue their exploitation, then all you have to do is ask God to give you the power to relocate yourself, and your roots will become legs upon which you can simply walk away, and they will carry you to where ever the Spirit leads.
Do not be lulled into the false sense of security that the world promises you. The world has become a museum of empty promises, gaslighting, and threats. But you know better than to believe the world's propaganda. You know to walk by faith, and not by sight. God loves you, and He will take care of you so long as you abide in the love of Christ. You do not need anything from the world. It is the world that needs you.
Heaven and earth will pass away. Do not pass with it.

I know HODLTHEHUT and everything but when will you sell at least a portion of your shares, given that BTC might crash 50-80% in this cycle as it has done in previous cycles?
My personal PT is to sell a portion of my shares when BTC hits 100k and let the rest ride + buy the dip when the aforementioned and statistically likely crash happens.
My average SP is 6 euros so I'd love to get a 3-4x on my investment with BTC around 100k.
Curious to hear about your strategies.

2021.10.24 14:52 pandemic_cowboy Question About Minimal Pairs
This is a basic question, but I'm blanking here. If we have two words that differ in meaning and by only one sound, but the differentiating sound unit is an addition to one of the words, is it still a minimal pair?
scope and cope; cat and scat; skid and kid
as opposed to pick and tick.

2021.10.24 14:52 PuddingRnbowExtreme Is the cadence of your voice fast & halting & uncomfortable for other people to listen to? Is this a bipolar thing in general? Or is it just my own problem?
Sometimes I wonder how certain YouTubers are so easy to watch even if they're not talking about anything in particular, they just have a soothing voice cadence & mannerism.
I wish I had that. You can hold an audience absolutely captive if you just have those two things. I mean I don't care about YouTube but this holds true in relationships and daily interactions with everyone.

2021.10.24 14:52 itsworththewhile Wireless internet solutions comparable to a home cable internet connection?
I'm well aware of "unlimited" data plans, which really just means unlimited browsing but the moment you stream something you start getting throttled. I pay 100/mo for this on my cell and it's absolutely abysmal. Considering I also use my cell for work, I can't get throttled during working hours, as it really causes some serious issues.
I'm wondering if any of you know of any decent wireless internet plans where one could hook up a modem/router in the car and have internet comparable to a home cable connection, without any throttling.

2021.10.24 14:52 mcegg95 Sore/tenderness after sex after leep
Hi, I had sex for the first time after having a leep done 2 months ago. During it was not really painful.. pretty normal. But ever since we finished I have been so sore and tender in the pelvic area/low abdomen. Is this normal? It's the first time I had sex in 3 months and now I am so worried if this is my new normal or will I get back to normal eventually?
It literally feels like that first week after having the leep procedure done. Also, I think I might be ovulating because I've had all the symptoms of ovulation for the past few days. Which is normal for me to feel ovulation symptoms for the several days leading up to it.
