Jesus likened His second coming to the groom about to enter the sanctuary. He pictured for us ten maidens, five prepared with oil for their lamps and five with lamps low on oil. The lesson from this parable is that we do not know the time when the groom will come, so we are always to be ready. This is a good time to check the oil in your lamps. Are you ready for Jesus to return? Is your household in order? Are you following His teachings? Is your lamp shining brightly?
