Day 25: Wednesday // January 31
We expect first responders and our military to be ready at a moment’s notice to act when needed. What about followers of Jesus? We should live lives ready to receive the second coming of our King. Jesus indicates in this parable that it is possible for believers to have good intentions, but fall into a sense of apathy and unpreparedness. Examine your own readiness today. How has your oil run out? Have you been sleeping when you should have been preparing? Offer your sense of readiness to the Lord and commit to living in a way that is ready for his return at any time. Ask him to show you how you should be better prepared.
