Jesus is teaching us three lessons in today’s parable.
- Be vigilant and prepared for the bridegrooms arrival. We must be ready to go out and meet Jesus when he arrives. We are called to wait for him.
- There are certain things that we cannot borrow. We cannot borrow another persons faith or their spiritual life. We are each responsible for nurturing our spiritual journey.
- There will be a time when it will be too late. The Devil is always trying to tell us that there is still more time to change and that everything will work out. This is foolish. Keep awake. You know neither the day nor the hour when Jesus is coming.
- Let us remember that Jesus desires to be in communion with us. He loves us and he desires that we love him back.
