Jesus, in teaching on the last days in Matthew 24 and 25, gave us three parables as instructions on how we’re to prepare ourselves. In Matt 24, He shows us what the external conditions are going to be like, as well as the signs of the last days. But in Matt 25, He gives us the application as to what we’re to focus on. All too often, we focus on reading the signs instead of concentrating on what He told us to be doing. It’s time for us to re-focus on what really is important that we should be doing in preparation for His return.
