The Parable of the 5 Wise and 5 Foolish Snow Enthusiasts

With Credits to Matthew 25:1 “At that time the kingdom of heaven will be like ten snow enthusiasts who went out to meet the impending snow storm 2 Five of them were foolish and five were wise. 3 The foolish ones took their doughnut recipes but did not take any oil or ingredients with them. 4 The wise ones, however, took oil in jars along with their recipes and plenty of ingredients. 5 The snowstorm was a long time in coming, and they all became drowsy and fell asleep.
6 “At midday the cry rang out: ‘Here’s the storm! Come out to meet it!’
7 “Then all the enthusiasts woke up and pulled out their recipes . 8 The foolish ones said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil; and ingredients so we can try our recipes .’
9 “‘No,’ they replied, ‘there may not be enough for both us and you. Instead, go to those who sell and buy some for yourselves.’
10 “But while they were on their way to buy the oil, the storm arrived. The enthusiasts who were ready had plenty of doughnuts for them and their neighbors ..
11 “Later the others came sliding in to the grocery store. They said, ‘Open the door for us!’
12 “But the sign on the door replied, ‘closed for inclement weather.’ And the weary janitor that finally came to the door replied ”Truly I tell you, I don’t know you.’
13 “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour.
