Thursday, October 30 ================= Keep on the watch. —Matt. 25:13. Imagine that a prominent official asks you to drive him to an important appointment. A few minutes before leaving to pick him up for the meeting, however, you realize that there is not enough fuel in your vehicle to make the trip. You need to rush off to purchase some. As you do, the official arrives. He looks around but cannot find you. He cannot wait, so he asks someone else to drive him. You soon get back and realize that the official has left without you. How would you feel? In his parable of the virgins, Jesus used a similar situation to illustrate why during the time of the end, some anointed Christians would prove to be faithful and discreet, but others would not. (Matt. 25:1-12) He emphasized his point by saying: “Keep on the watch, therefore, because you know neither the day nor the hour”—that is, when Jesus would actually execute God’s judgment on Satan’s world.
