Matthew 19-24

Matthew 24:42 (ESV)
Therefore, stay awake, for you do not know on what day your Lord is coming.

What a reminder! We don't think about this as much as the old-timers used to think about it, but we should. We need to stay spiritually alert and focused on Jesus. How sad would it be if Jesus returned to find us in a state of wandering away from him!

Also, my friend Liz sent me this great quote about Bible reading yesterday:
"By reading the scriptures I am so renewed that all nature seems renewed around me and with me. The sky seems to be a pure, a cooler blue, the trees a deeper green. The whole world is charged with the glory of God and I feel fire and music under my feet."
-Thomas Merton
