“Behold, I am coming like a thief.
Blessed is the one who remains awake and clothed,
so that he will not go naked and let his shame be exposed.”
“But understand this:
If the homeowner had known at what hour the thief was coming,
he would not have let his house be broken into.”
“he would not have let his house be broken into”
refers to not keeping watch on our lives.
Are we carelessly wasting time glorifying godless things
that we are not to have anything to do with?
“Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world,
but let God transform you
into a new person by changing the way you think.
Then you will learn to know God’s will for you,
which is good and pleasing and perfect.”
How do you spend your “leisure” time?
We have television, computers, phones, games and music
that we look to for escape and relaxation.
Their focus however, is often
violence, murder, deceit, adultery, idolatry, sex, witchcraft, theft, and jealousy.
