I'm going away. I'm going to give you each some money. I would like you to make a profit of it by the time I come back
There once was a man who was very wealthy. He was going to go on a long journey so he called 3 of his most trusted friends. He gave the first friend 5 bags full of cash. He gave the second friend 2 bags full of cash and he gave the last fried 1 bag full of cash.
The man who got the 5 bags bought a house, and with the rent he gained five more bags.
The man that got 2 bags bought a cow and with the milk received 2 more bags.
The last man locked the bag of cash in a safe and did not invest in it in any way.
When the wealthy man came back he asked to see the investments. The first man gave back 10 bags. The wealthy man was pleased. The second man gave back 4 bags. The wealthy man was pleased.
The last man gave back one bag. The wealthy man replied You wicked, lazy friend ! you should have put my money on deposit with the bankers, so that when I returned I would have received it back with interest. “‘So he took the bag of cash from him and give it to the one who has ten bags.
