Be like servants who await their master's return from a wedding, ready to open immediately when he comes and knocks.
Have you ever been to a wedding where the host, maybe the bride's parents, just kept the party going? They paid the band to play an extra hour or maybe asked the catering staff to pour more wine? When you're celebrating you don't want it to end.
Take this to the nth degree and you have the wedding feasts back in Jesus' time. They would last days, usually until the wine ran out. Now imagine being a servant, waiting for your master to come home from a wedding party. You don't know when, but you know it very well could be in the wee hours and you need to be ready. In today's gospel, Jesus praises the servant who is ready when his master returns and says, shockingly that for those servants, the master will wait on them.
Do you feel like you're living a life that would make your returning master proud? Are you ready, should he come home from the party? Because in this Christian life, not only are we called to serve God, but he says a great reward awaits us. We are not slaves, but children. He just asks that we prepare our hearts and souls for his presence. And yes, Jesus will return someday, but we have the chance to show him to others here on this day in this moment.
