Matthew 24:42-51

The gospel presents life lived with the expectation of God’s return. We see a picture of a servant living faithfully and carefully while he waits for the return of his own master. What is seen is an image of our own life of faith. We are that servant waiting for the final appearing of our Lord. Although we do not know when the master will return, we are called to live as faithful stewards of the life that the master has entrusted to our care.
