Do you fear the future or do you live care free? Firefighters are trained to fight fires. They know there will be fires, but they don’t know when. So they are in a constant state of readiness, even when they sleep. Their clothing is all laid out so they can quickly get dressed and get to the fire. That isn’t a practical way for most of us to live – in a constant state of preparedness in case something happens…or is it? That is what we will look at this week as we examine two more of the famous stories told by Jesus.
