A Parable

Once upon a time, Jesus did a favor for a saint. He GAVE that saint a great gift, a unique one which was given to no other saint. The saint then built a wall around Jesus’ gift so that no one could steal it from him. People heard him using Jesus’ gift and were drawn to it, so he decided to allow them to use it, but with the full understanding that it was HIS gift and that they had to pay without ceasing to use it. This involved incorporating his gift or else selling it to someone else who was incorporated to profit from the gift. All this so that he could control something which was had freely been given to him.

What will Jesus do with that saint on the day of reckoning? Will He praise him or will He say, “When you required payment from one of the least of these, you required payment of me.”
