No one knows the time

We’ve become a time-driven world. Even families today are driven by personal planners and palm com­puters ready to schedule every minute of the day. We allot specific hours to family dinners, recreation, even “quality time” with our children. In fact, our scheduling mania makes it hard for us to cope with unexpected events. We want to avoid the messiness of an unstructured future.

Jesus, however, has other ideas. He asks us to be prepared for His return, no matter when He arrives, day or night, early or late. How awkward that is for us today. It just doesn’t fit our lifestyle – and that’s precisely the point. Our expectation, anticipation of Jesus’ return should pull us out of everyday concerns, moving our eyes off the day’s schedule and onto Him. He wants to be the miraculous event that catches us by surprise, unbidden yet hoped for, unplanned but welcome. May today’s reading remind us to prepare our hearts and lives for His return, today and every day.
