Matthew 25: 1-13

1 The kingdom of heaven is like what happened one night when ten girls took their oil lamps and went to a wedding to meet the groom.[a] 2 Five of the girls were foolish and five were wise. 3 The foolish ones took their lamps, but no extra oil. 4 The ones who were wise took along extra oil for their lamps.

5The groom was late arriving, and the girls became drowsy and fell asleep. 6 Then in the middle of the night someone shouted, “Here’s the groom! Come to meet him!”7 When the girls got up and started getting their lamps ready, 8 the foolish ones said to the others, “Let us have some of your oil! Our lamps are going out.”

9The girls who were wise answered, “There’s not enough oil for all of us! Go and buy some for yourselves.”

10 While the foolish girls were on their way to get some oil, the groom arrived. The girls who were ready went into the wedding, and the doors were closed. 11 Later the other girls returned and shouted, “Sir, sir! Open the door for us!”

12 But the groom replied, “I don’t even know you!”

13 So, my disciples, always be ready! You don’t know the day or the time when all this will happen.

Nobody knows, when Jesus will return to us … will he return with glory ans splendor, or perhaps silently and nobody can see Him? It is important, that we are always with our lights lit up and watching – not sleeping. The man that fulfilles the commandments of our Lord, who loves his brothers, sisters, family, even enemies, that one is the one that Jesus will show the glory and splendor. To do all this we need  “the oil” in our lamps – what is this oil that burns in our lams, that gives light??? It is love, goodness, humbleness. ………  What about You ??  Do You belong to the group of “wise girls” or do You belong to the foolish ones ??? It´s on You – to whom You want to belong !!!
