Bible: Matthew 24:40-50

24:40 Then there will be two men in the field; one will be taken and one left. 1  24:41 There will be two women grinding grain with a mill; 2  one will be taken and one left.

24:42Therefore stay alert, because you do not know on what day 3  your Lord will come. 24:43 But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief 4  was coming, he would have been alert and would not have let his house be broken into. 24:44 Therefore you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him. 5 

The Faithful and Wise Slave

24:45Who then is the faithful and wise slave, 6  whom the master has put in charge of his household, to give the other slaves 7  their food at the proper time? 24:46 Blessed is that slave whom the master finds at work 8  when he comes. 24:47 I tell you the truth, 9  the master 10  will put him in charge of all his possessions. 24:48 But if 11  that evil slave should say to himself, 12 My master is staying away a long time,’ 24:49 and he begins to beat his fellow slaves and to eat and drink with drunkards, 24:50 then the master of that slave will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he does not foresee,
