In Jesus’ final three parables to His disciples, Jesus is teaching about being ready for His second coming. Would people be expectant and looking ahead to His arrival? Would they have used their God-given gifts and talents to further His Kingdom? Did they, do we, understand that a day of judgment is approaching and faith and actions will be weighed and rewarded?
Matthew 25:1-13. What does the waiting for the bridegroom’s arrival symbolize? What made the girls who were ready wise? How can I apply this to my life?
