Animal Lessons (1)

I have a cat. Her name is Jazzy. She is very alert, and she watches everything. When Jazzy is in the living room, she sits in a corner so she can see the whole room. My cat wants to know what is happening all the time.
When I put food in Jazzy’s bowl, she hears me and comes running to eat. When I open the back door, Jazzy wants to go outside with me. If I sit down to eat, Jazzy will sit and watch me. Why? Because she hopes I will drop some food on the floor! Jazzy is always ready for the things that she likes.
I want to be ready, too. No, I don’t want to be ready for food or to go outside. I want to be ready for Jesus to come again. In our Bible Reading today, Jesus said that we should always be ready (verse 42). Why? Because “the Son of Man [Jesus] will come at a time when you don’t expect him” (verse 44b).
I hope that you have accepted Jesus as your Savior and that you are living for Him. Then you are ready for the day when Jesus will come again.
