Gospel: Matthew 24:42-51
So you too must keep watch!
Flooding here! Hurricane in Hawaii! Earthquake in Bali! We must expect and prepare for the events foretold!
Jesus’ purpose in telling about his return is not to stimulate predictions about the date but to warn us to be prepared. Will you be ready?
“A faithful, sensible servant is one to whom the matter can give the responsibility of managing his other household servants and feeding them.” This is what Jesus ask of us, to spend the time of waiting taking care of his people and doing his work here on earth. This is the best way to prepare for Christ’s return.
“If the master returns and finds that the servant has done a good job, there will be a reward.”
Lord Jesus may you find us faithful. Keep us on fire. May the footprints that we leave inspire the others to obey your word. Amen.
