This parable in Matthew 25:1-13 wasn’t just for the people in Jesus’s time – it is for us today. It reminds us that we must live a life honoring the Lord, focusing on Him, and ready for His return. When we look at the ten, only half were ready; only the wise were prepared. “The foolish ones said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil; our lamps are going out.’ ‘No,’ they replied, ‘there may not be enough for both us and you. Instead, go to those who sell oil and buy some for yourselves.’ But while they were on their way to buy the oil, the bridegroom arrived. The virgins who were ready went in with him to the wedding banquet. And the door was shut.”

We must keep our lamps lit. We must keep our eyes on the horizon. We must be prepared and “keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour.”
