Today's Thought -- Luke 12:35-40 Watchfulness 35"Be dressed ready for service and keep your lamps burning, 36like men waiting for their master to return from a wedding banquet, so that when he comes and knocks they can immediately open the door for him. 37It will be good for those servants whose master finds them watching when he comes. I tell you the truth, he will dress himself to serve, will have them recline at the table and will come and wait on them. 38It will be good for those servants whose master finds them ready, even if he comes in the second or third watch of the night. 39But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have let his house be broken into. 40You also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him." Jesus had just urged his disciples to invest in things that are eternal Now he reminds them to be ready for the beginning of this eternal future. His coming is near, so be ready. His coming will be unexpected by many, so be ready. In addition, there is a great blessing for those of us who are looking for his coming and are ready for his return. Are you ready?
