Bible: Luke 12:35-40

Call to Faithful Stewardship

12:35Get dressed for service 1  and keep your lamps burning; 2  12:36 be like people 3  waiting for their master to come back from the wedding celebration, 4  so that when he comes and knocks they can immediately open the door for him. 12:37 Blessed are those slaves 5  whom their master finds alert 6  when he returns! I tell you the truth, 7  he will dress himself to serve, 8  have them take their place at the table, 9  and will come 10  and wait on them! 11  12:38 Even if he comes in the second or third watch of the night 12  and finds them alert, 13  blessed are those slaves! 14  12:39 But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what hour the thief 15  was coming, he would not have let 16  his house be broken into. 12:40 You also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.” 17
