Bible: Matthew 24:43-47

24:43 But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief 1  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. 2 

The Faithful and Wise Slave

24:45Who then is the faithful and wise slave, 3  whom the master has put in charge of his household, to give the other slaves 4  their food at the proper time? 24:46 Blessed is that slave whom the master finds at work 5  when he comes. 24:47 I tell you the truth, 6  the master 7  will put him in charge of all his possessions.
