Prepare a Return

What can we expect when the Lord returns?  Jesus wants us to be prepared, but how?  What should we be doing?  In the rest of this chapter, Jesus will be expanding on and illustrating His expectations.  Today He uses the example of a master going on a journey, entrusting his property to several key servants.  It's a test.  He has bigger plans than just to make a few bucks while he's away.  He needs to know which servants are loyal and committed to him.  We too are being tested.  Do you know how you're doing?  Do you know what Jesus' response will be when you stand before him to give account of what you did with His "property"? Let's see what this parable tells us about what He expects of us.  From Matthew 25:14-30.
