Luke 12:35-36 "Be dressed for service and keep your lamps burning, as though you were waiting for your master to return from the wedding feast. Then you will be ready to open the door and let him in the moment he arrives and knocks.
I have read this many times before and understood it's meaning, to be ready for Jesus's return ant any time in my life at any time in my day. Today I got another meaning from it. One that was very personal for me. That I need to be dressed and ready each day to go and serve. There many not be an opportunity each day, but each day I need to be up and dressed and ready to walk out the door if the opportunity arises.
You see today I had a "lazy" day. I tend to love this, well the first half of a "lazy" day and by the second half, somewhere around 2:30 I find myself not liking me very much. I must learn that on even a lazy day I need to be up and dressed. Then see what the day brings. When I get up and get dressed I accomplish so much more, even behind the four walls of my house. I serve my husband better when I do what this verse says,"be dressed and ready for service." I must work in this!
