“Be dressed and ready for service and keep your lamps burning…” (Luke 12:35)

Jesus tells us to “be ready” for the master to return — not just in case something bad happens, but also something good. The way we manage our time, talent and treasure will have an eternal impact on us and those under our influence and when we are being generous is when we are most like our master, Jesus.
