At my grandson’s T-ball game, some little kid smacked a long hit, way out into the outfield. Everybody went chasing after the ball, everybody on both teams, – even the base runners and several of those waiting to bat! T-ball is a riot. Another time, one of the youngsters was so intent on being in the “ready position” – knees slightly bent, hands forward, eyes fixed on the batter – that when the ball came his way it sailed right past him. Readiness doesn’t amount to much unless you can translate an attitude or mindset of readiness into actions of readiness. When we are truly ready, we do what we are meant to do.
As we continue a study of Jesus’ parable about being ready for His return (Luke 12:36 – 48), how we can maintain an attitude of readiness and translate that readiness into action – the right kind of action? What is the right kind of action?
