We never know the day and the hour when Jesus will come. Are we alert and awake to that possibility? If we are honest, the answer is probably no. We tie ourselves into knots about things that aren’t important but ignore the one thing that is all important.
Jesus said to his disciples:
For you do not know on which day your Lord will come.
Be sure of this: if the master of the house
had known the hour of night when the thief was coming,
he would have stayed awake
and not let his house be broken into.
So too, you also must be prepared,
for at an hour you do not expect, the Son of Man will come.
Let us try to encourage each other to be truly awake and alert, so that when he comes we will be ready to greet him with a clean heart.
