Luke 12:35-36

Luk 12:35 “Get dressed for service and keep your lamps burning;
Luk 12:36 be like people waiting for their master to come back from the wedding celebration, so that when he comes and knocks they can immediately open the door for him.

working britches

When I was growing up in rural Florida, my parents and siblings would tell me to get my working britches on. That meant it was time for work, so be ready. That is essentially what Jesus is telling his followers here. Instead of fussing about what flashy clothing you could wear, get dressed for service because your master could return at any moment. When he comes, be ready.

LORD, help us to get ready to welcome your return.
