Today’s reading
Matthew 25

Parable of the Ten Bridesmaids

Matthew 25:1-13 NLT
[1] “Then the Kingdom of Heaven will be like ten bridesmaids who took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom. [2] Five of them were foolish, and five were wise. [3] The five who were foolish didn’t take enough olive oil for their lamps, [4] but the other five were wise enough to take along extra oil. [5] When the bridegroom was delayed, they all became drowsy and fell asleep. [6] “At midnight they were roused by the shout, ‘Look, the bridegroom is coming! Come out and meet him!’ [7] “All the bridesmaids got up and prepared their lamps. [8] Then the five foolish ones asked the others, ‘Please give us some of your oil because our lamps are going out.’ [9] “But the others replied, ‘We don’t have enough for all of us. Go to a shop and buy some for yourselves.’ [10] “But while they were gone to buy oil, the bridegroom came. Then those who were ready went in with him to the marriage feast, and the door was locked. [11] Later, when the other five bridesmaids returned, they stood outside, calling, ‘Lord! Lord! Open the door for us!’ [12] “But he called back, ‘Believe me, I don’t know you!’ [13] “So you, too, must keep watch! For you do not know the day or hour of my return.

Today’s prayer
Dear God, Abba Father, Jesus my Lord and Savior, my source. I come to You each morning to ready myself for the day. Putting on Your full armor; belt of truth, breastplate of righteousness, gospel of peace, shield of faith, helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is Your word. This step by step approach assures me of all I know to be true. While giving me something to carry with me throughout the day as a reminder to stay alert and always be ready. For I know if I relax or get to comfortable, what can happen. I must stay ready; ready to do my best, ready to be a witness of Your glory, grace and mercy, and ready to die to myself. Help me be ready Jesus. Amen
