05 預備著的童女  

引自耶穌十童女的比喻,有十童女奉主命迎接新郎。童女中的五人殷勤機伶,早早備妥燈油好整以暇;餘五人閒散怠慢不以為意。及至夜半新郎突然來了,慎重其事的五童女從容迎接,與新人同赴盛宴;另外五人則因渾渾噩噩措手不及,被撇棄門外。耶穌藉此提醒,人生在世當承天命儆醒度日。不單善用今生收穫真正的豐饒,更將在末後得以進入神所賜的永生。

In the Parable of Ten Virgins, Jesus tells a story about a group of 10 virgins or bridesmaids chosen to participate in a wedding. Each of them is carrying a lamp as they await the coming of the bridegroom, but only five are wise enough to bring extra oil for their lamps in case they must wait longer than anticipated. In the middle of the night, when the bridegrooms shows up, the five unprepared virgins are left behind while the other five accompany the bridegroom to the wedding. Jesus Christ used this parable to remind people to always be prepared by living their lives to the fullest so when the time comes, they can be with God for eternity.
