A Reflection On Matthew 24:36-44 for Advent
Ready or not, hear I come!
Am I ready?
What am I ready for?
For my room to be inspected?
For my children to go out into the world?
For my professor to grade my paper?
For God to find me?
Would God recognize that I have been sorting through, sorting out,
or would it look to God like I had been piling up ideas and courses of action like a pile of newspaper clippings and pages torn out of magazines –ready for some future use?
Is that recipe for a redwhiteandblue jello mold even relevant any more?
Is that 1970s advice column on parenting toddlers of use to me in the world now?
Can what is needed of me from God merge with this moment now?
