Advent is a time of looking back at the birth of Jesus and looking forward to His return. How are we preparing for this event? Do we put as much energy into preparing for the return of Jesus as we take in preparing for the holidays? Or how about taking care of our possessions? We don’t know when a thief might break into our house, so we prepare for them at all times. We lock our doors and windows. We leave a light on when we are gone. We insure our possessions. We do things now because a thief could come at some unknown time; so will Jesus. Are you prepared for Christ’s return?
