Blessed are those servants whom the master, when he comes, will find watching

Jesus, teaching the disciples, explains:

“Let your waist be girded and your lamps burning;  and you yourselves be like men who wait for their master, when he will return from the wedding, that when he comes and knocks they may open to him immediately.  Blessed are those servants whom the master, when he comes, will find watching. Assuredly, I say to you that he will gird himself and have them sit down to eat, and will come and serve them.  And if he should come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants.”

Perfect Master,

You have taught us that we will be blessed if we are found watching for You.
It is for this reason that we remain steadfast in our anticipation.
May we be the servants that You find watching for You.
Would You reveal Yourself to us.

Amen

Today I am reading: Genesis 29, 30; Luke 12

One Response to “Blessed are those servants whom the master, when he comes, will find watching”

  1. Proverbs 8:10-13
    10 Choose my instruction instead of silver,
    knowledge rather than choice gold,
    11 for wisdom is more precious than rubies,
    and nothing you desire can compare with her.
    12 “I, wisdom, dwell together with prudence;
    I possess knowledge and discretion.
    13 To fear the LORD is to hate evil;
    I hate pride and arrogance,
    evil behavior and perverse speech.
    Proverbs 8:33-35
    33 Listen to my instruction and be wise;
    do not ignore it.
    34 Blessed is the man who listens to me,
    watching daily at my doors,
    waiting at my doorway.
    35 For whoever finds me finds life
    and receives favor from the LORD.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Lord, may we seek You. May we seek the wisdom that comes from you. May we listen to Your wisdom, may we watch daily, may we wait patiently, may we trust completely in You. May we learn to fear (respect) You with all we are. May we trust in Your ways, not our own. May we be patient as You reveal Yourself to us. May we hate any pride and arrogance in our selves. Teach us to truly be humble before
