42 Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming. 43 But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into.44 Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.
We have no idea when Jesus will return. Since it could happen any day, today perhaps, we need to get our house in order. It takes courage to tidy up your house. It may even take doing something so out of character for you that your closest friends and family think you are insane. You may have to take all the contents out of your house in one fell swoop and only allow back in the things that are important. Faith, hope love are a good place start. All the other things worth keeping fall under one of those. Forgiveness, charity, and peace are the other important ones.
We just don’t know when life will be over for us. We must love and cherish all the time given, but also we must prepare. Do not procrastinate. You may think you have all the time in the world and then it is over in a flash of light or a blink of an eye, God’s or yours.
Don’t wait. Get busy cleaning out and organizing your house. The next adventure is going to be so much better, you want to be ready when it starts. If you take seriously the need to be ready and watching for Jesus, when the next life comes to call on you, there will be no sadness when you leave. Unless Jesus returns to this earth sooner than that, either way, be ready!
