"Take ... no thought for the morrow," counseled the great Teacher as he talked to the multitude on the mountainside, "for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof."

Reading the rest of that great sermon and then reading the talk on the Mount of Olives when the disciples of the Nazarene came to him for instructions, it is clear that it was farthest from his mind to discourage industry, foresight, and thrift. The stories of the wise and foolish virgins, the faithful servant and the talents, all that he taught and preached, was directed toward the encouragement of those and other virtues, and toward the correction of human frailties.
