Day 4: Lights Burning, Loins Girded
Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning;Luke 12:35 (KJV)
Reflection: Being prepared is a continuous process, a lifelong commitment. Having our “loins girded” means being always active in our faith, while keeping our “lights burning” suggests a life that radiates Christ’s love and wisdom.
Illustration: Consider a professional athlete always in training, not just for the big games but even during the off-season. In the same way, we must continually train ourselves spiritually for the day of Christ’s return.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, grant us the endurance to keep our spiritual lights burning and loins girded, so that we are ever prepared for Your return. Amen.
