Mt. 25:1-13 – the parable of the wise and foolish virgins is a parable of judgment.
1. Five virgins came prepared with extra oil for their lamps, five did not;
2. When the bridegroom came, the five who were prepared entered the celebration;
3. The unprepared returned after the celebration began and were rejected.
Here’s the key phrase for me:
“Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour.”
We scurry about with our busyness getting things done, and prepare a plan for each day. Can we be so busy with our work that we do not prepare for what is most important?
Success is when preparation meets opportunity.
Can we get too busy with trivia and miss out on what is most important?
Creating balance means scheduling time to think. Think about what’s most important and give it priority.
This is a daily discipline. Start now.
