June is a celebratory month. It’s the end of school (YAY!), the start of summer, the month of graduations, weddings and Father’s Day celebrations. (June 1 is also National Donut Day!)
With all these festivities, preparations needed for this month come to mind. Are we ready for it?
Just about everything in life becomes much easier with preparation. From womb to tomb, and all events in between, people can start anticipating occasions as well as planning early.
Isn’t it the same way with our spiritual life?
Let's plan ahead like the parable of the 10 virgins who brought lamps to meet the bridegroom. Five virgins brought oil with their lamps while the other five did not bring oil. When the bridegroom came, only the wise virgins with oil were able to light their lamps and join the festivities. The five who were unprepared were left out.
Have you prepared your oil for the festivities of this life and beyond?
