Be Ready

Be on guard! Be alert! You do not
know when that time will come.
               —Mark 13:33

There have been self-declared prophets in every generation who have clucked that they have nailed down the exact date of the world’s end.

They have all been wrong. No surprise there, for Jesus said, “About that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father” (Matt. 24:36).

However, he did give fair warning that when that time comes it will be a day of business-as-usual—people will be eating, drinking, marrying, working. “So you must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him” (Matt. 24:44).

It could be a million years from now. Or today. If you knew it would be today is there anything you would do differently?

Don’t be too busy to be ready.
