Luke 12:39-40 "Understand this: If a homeowner knew exactly when a burglar was coming, he would not permit his house to be broken into. you also must be ready all the time, for the Son of man will come when least expected."
When I read this I though of storms, in 2008 we had storms come through, straight line winds and we had some storm damage. Then in 2011 we had tornado's come through our part of Alabama and we had damage again. Just a few weeks ago again we had straight line winds come though and we were safe this time, but a couple of friends of mine had pretty bad damage to their houses. Thank goodness all of us were unharmed only our houses were damaged, but now I am really aware of storms and I pay attention to the weather. Later this week there are suppose to be straight line winds in our area ... I will be watching and waiting, I will have my shoes on and have my safe place where I can get safe there if I need to.
We need to be that ready for Jesus' return!! We don't need to be caught off guard..we have been told that He will be returning when we least expect Him. We have today to get ready...and maybe we will have tomorrow as a "today" to get ready. But each day we need to prepare for that day just as if Jesus would come back. We need to always be conducting ourselves in a way that would make Jesus proud to call us His. He tells us here to always be prepared!!
