Lukas 08: A parable of investing
A farmer went out to sow his seed. As he planted, some seeds fell on the path and were trampled upon, and some were eaten by birds. Some seeds fell upon the rocks, and when they sprouted, the plants withered because they had no water. Still other seeds fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants. And some seeds fell on good soil and yielded a crop a hundred times more than was sown.
