35 “Be ready! Be fully dressed and have your lights shining.
Just like an expecting mother, she knows that at the end of nine months she shall have to give birth. Yet, even after nine months of preparation, when the moment of giving birth arrives it can feel as a surprise.
40 So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at a time when you don’t expect him!”
See it as the child that has been born in this world, The first few months they are still with God. But the more the child grows the more interesting the world becomes. So we are His children, the more we partake in the world, the weaker our relationship with our father.
We have taken for granted the relationship with our Creator. And especially in this time has the relationship with our Father been of great importance. He provides us with inner tranquility, He gives us the strength to forgive and love.
So let the world not dimmer down your light for the Lord. Shine so bright that neighbours start to become curious of who your God is. Shine so bright for the Lord that children in darkness are starting to see.
Jesus : “ I am the way, the truth, and the life.”
