I’m truely privledged to be a servant in my master’s house. He is the richest man, even more richer than the men in the neighboring villages. I’ve been a trusted worker for the last six years. However, I have decided that when my freedom is presented to me, I will not give it up. For this reason, you’ve been chosen to take my place. This year you will work by my side and learn the tasks entrusted to me. I understand that you are not familiar with the customs of my master’s people. Say that he has eaten his meal and leaves the table, but his napkin is carelessly thrown on the table. Then you know that he is finished and will not return for more. At this time you can come and clean up the table. On the other hand, if he leaves the table and his napkin is folded, it is a silent message that tells us that he plans on returning and that we should be ready. Come, it is time to prepare the meal, our master will soon arrive from the fields.
John 20:1-9, “1Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the entrance. 2So she came running to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one Jesus loved, and said, “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we don’t know where they have put him!” 3So Peter and the other disciple started for the tomb. 4Both were running, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first. 5He bent over and looked in at the strips of linen lying there but did not go in. 6Then Simon Peter, who was behind him, arrived and went into the tomb. He saw the strips of linen lying there, 7as well as the burial cloth that had been around Jesus’ head. The cloth was folded up by itself, separate from the linen. 8Finally the other disciple, who had reached the tomb first, also went inside. He saw and believed. 9(They still did not understand from Scripture that Jesus had to rise from the dead.)”
