“Then the kingdom of heaven will be comparable to ten virgins, who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish, and five were prudent. For when the foolish took their lamps, they took no oil with them, but the prudent took oil in flasks along with their lamps.
Now while the bridegroom was delaying, they all got drowsy and began to sleep. But at midnight there was a shout, “Behold, the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.” Then all those virgins rose and trimmed their lamps. The foolish said to the prudent, “Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.” But the prudent answered, “No, there will not be enough for us and you too; go instead to the dealers and buy some for yourselves.” And while they were going away to make the purchase, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding feast; and the door was shut.
Later the other virgins also came, saying, “Lord, lord, open up for us.” But he answered, “Truly I say to you, I do not know you.” Be on the alert then, for you do not know the day nor the hour.
The meaning of this parable is that you should use your wisdom and time here wisely, because you do not know when your day will come.”
Every time you do good deeds and follow God’s Word and will, you save up valuable oil and seeds that will grow into a good harvest. Make sure you save up lots of oil and good seeds so that you can be ready like the ten wise virgins.
Always do the best you can with everything you have, every day, so that you will have no regrets when your time here is over. Don’t be foolish, be wise, and use what you have been given for the right purposes.
