You also must be prepared, for at an hour you do not expect, the Son of Man will come.” – Luke 12:40

“Dad,” Tina said calmly, “there’s someone here.” There was no one at the gate but as I heard the scuffle of feet from upstairs, I realized what was happening: a thief in the house! I quickly ran upstairs but he had already jumped from the window, gotten on his bike and disappeared.
The experience was a lesson:
1. Ready – After the incident, we did everything to be safe. We called the police, told the barangay, installed grills and even bought baseball bats!
2. Rampant – There were five other victims in our community in the past month. The thieves were ready and observant as no one had yet been caught.
3. Resolve – The reason why my usually jumpy wife was calm was because her Scripture reading that morning read, “I am with you. No one will attack and harm you” (Acts 18:10). It was only afterwards did she realize the reason behind the passage and why she was at peace during the incident. God had prepared her.
As Christians, we need to protect ourselves spiritually as much as we prepare for physical dangers. God desires our salvation. Rod Velez (rod.velez@gmail.com)

REFLECTION:
Whether it is insurance, a high wall or a security guard, we go to great lengths to protect ourselves against temporal danger. But how much effort do we invest in preparing spiritually to meet Jesus?

You watch over the people I love more than I can ever care for them. But help me, Lord, to pray for them that they may grow to love You always and therefore be prepared to meet You one day.
