Read: Matthew 25:1-13
Think: Why do you think Jesus told this parable? Looking at your life right now, are you more like the bridesmaid who was prepared, or the one that was unprepared for the groom’s return? This is a hard question to think about, but if you knocked on Jesus’ door, would He know you?
Pray: Jesus, I want to be prepared for your return. Help make me ready. Draw my heart close to yours. I want to know you.
Apply: What is one thing in your life that hinders you from being prepared for Jesus’ return? Maybe it’s a distraction, excuse, or a certain relationship that isn’t honoring God. Choose to take the measures necessary to cut that thing out of your life that is holding you back.
