The parable of the wise and foolish maidens reminds us that being a Christian requires living ones faith out every day. Being a disciple of Jesus is more than just waiting for Him to come again.

Am I a wise steward? How do I use my gifts? Am I vigilant in seeking out God’s presence and action in the world? How do I cope with distraction?

Dear Jesus, I want to be wise in the ways of faith. May I be inspired to be present to today. May Your Spirit keep me watchful and without distraction today.
