"Therefore be alert, since you don’t know what day your Lord is coming....If the homeowner had known what time the thief was coming, he would have stayed alert.... This is why you also must be ready, because the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect."-Matthew 24: 42-44
Hmmm, wonder why I chose this verse this week? Seems like someone could have saved himself some embarrassment by reading this...and a few similar scriptures, right? All kidding aside, I do feel for the people who actually believed the man who stated that yesterday, 6 pm, the world would end. I've heard there were people who gave up life savings, etc, thinking this would really happen. I'm not sure if this is true or not, but I hope for their sake that's just crazy talk and no one really did that! (I know most that I know, religious or not, believed the whole thing was just insane as well!!)
But seriously, I cannot understand how people can continue to try and predict when this is going to happen when it's clearly written that NO ONE will know! So really, what's the point in guessing? It could all be over tomorrow, next week, month, year...20 years from now, 100 years from now...we just cannot begin to know. So perhaps instead of worrying about it and dwelling on what could happen, we should just make the best of the time we do have and live life to the fullest.
