2014 Lenten Devotional - Friday, April 11
Posted on April 11, 2014 by Sister Carol Perry

“Be ready for action and have your lamps lit; like those who are waiting for their master to return from the wedding banquet…” - Luke 12:35

In a world as uncertain of time as was first century Palestine, the lesson of these servants was only too real. They had to be ready whenever the master came back from his party, to take and stable his animal, to offer him some refreshment, to lock the house for the night. They were to be waiting with lighted lamps.

We do not know when or how Jesus will come into our orbit, but we have to be alert not to miss Him. May we pray for this readiness.
