On the 1st Thursday of every month, my favourite supermarket offers 10% off the total grocery bill for seniors. Last Thursday I organised myself with a mask, long shopping list, plenty of bags and set off. As I was going through the check out, I asked the young fellow (tongue in cheek) if he needed to see my senior’s card for the 10% discount. ‘I’m sorry, madam, that is only for the 1st Thursday of each month.’ Darn – missed it by a week. ☹
Some dates are more important than others. Being a week out of sync for discount groceries is no big deal but what about if we have not sorted our spiritual lives when Jesus returns. He will come again; we don’t know when so it can’t be noted on the calendar. We have to be ready at all times – ready now!
Lord your Holy Bible tells us that you will return. Help us to be ready for that day. Amen
