Thursday of Week 21 Year 2

Throughout our lives, we are constantly reminded by our parents to take care of our bodies. We maintain personal hygiene, eat well, get sufficient sleep, and get involved in various activities to help us develop. But we are also reminded to pay attention to our spiritual life too. If we neglect our bodies, we may be stricken with illnesses that could lead us to suffer. If we neglect our spiritual life, our souls will suffer and we would be putting our eternal future in jeopardy. We do not know when we will die, so we should not slacken or take things for granted, and always be ready to meet the Lord at any time, at any moment.

In today's Gospel, Jesus warns us "Stay awake, because you do not know the day when your master is coming... You too must stand ready because the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect." Are we staying awake in our spiritual life? Have we been making consistent effort to remain in good relationship with God? Let us not squander the many opportunities and time God has given us to prepare ourselves to meet Him.
