A couple decided to vacation in Northern Italy. One of their stops was a well-maintained castle. As the gardener showed them around both castle and grounds, the couple fell in love with the charming place.
They complemented the gardener on the way he groomed the lawns, maintained the lovely landscaping, and produced such beautiful vitality in the whole place.
During lunch the couple asked the gardener when the owner of the estate had last been there.
“About ten years ago.”
The man was surprised and asked why he kept the gardens in such immaculate beauty.
The reply was simple, “Because I am expecting him to return.”
The wife, her curiosity peaked, asked if he was coming next week.
“I don’t know when he is coming, but I am expecting him today.”
That is how Christ’s people prepare for His return. They do not know when He is coming, but they know He could come at any time so they expect Him today. Study 1 Thessalonians 5:1-4 to learn about the day of the Lord and how to be ready so that you can escape the judgment that is coming.
