What is a parable?

Well, one of the parables that Jesus told was about these ten young virgins (women) who were invited to a wedding party.

Back in Jesus’ time, during a wedding party, there usually would be ten virgins who would walk the bridegroom into the church with lamps in their hand.

Conclusion l.jpg
Conclusion I do not know you.”

  • No one knows when we will meet the Lord (Just like the virgins didn’t know when the bridegroom was coming)

  • We have to be awake and careful of our spiritual life so that we may be ready to enter into Heaven with the Lord (The foolish virgins were not allowed into the church because they were not ready)

  • When the Lord does come, we want Him to know us and for us to know Him well also (The bridegroom told the foolish virgins that he did not know them)


Memory verse l.jpg

“Behold the bridegroom is coming; go out to meet Him.”

- Matthew 25:6
