Extra Oil

Heard the story of the wise and foolish virgins? In Summary, 10 girls were invited for a wedding feast, 5 were wise , 5 were foolish. Wise because they took extra oil for their lamps and the foolish one took no extra oil. The bridegroom delayed and the girls fell asleep.when he finally came, the oil in the lamps were finished . The foolish ones asked the wise ones for some of their oil but they didn't have enough to share. They then had to go into town to buy some oil....by the time they returned the wise girls were already in the feast and the doors were Shut. 
If you were to choose which group of girls would you join?
The wise virgins are those who are ready . Girls guides have this motto:be prepared .
This means always ready for whatever challenge they had.
As Christians we should always be ready... We should do what we have been called to do and do it with 2 things in mind :
We will be judged according to how we responded to the calling on our life .
We won't be on this earth forever.
Prepare by prayer , reading and meditating on the word which are Spirit and life, by obeying the word which shows our love for our Lord.
Should Jesus come today will he find you in readiness?
