Passage: Luke 12:31-40 (RSV)

Luke 12

31Instead, seek his kingdom, and these things shall be yours as well.
32"Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
33Sell your possessions, and give alms; provide yourselves with purses that do not grow old, with a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches and no moth destroys.
34For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
35"Let your loins be girded and your lamps burning,
36and be like men who are waiting for their master to come home from the marriage feast, so that they may open to him at once when he comes and knocks.
37Blessed are those servants whom the master finds awake when he comes; truly, I say to you, he will gird himself and have them sit at table, and he will come and serve them.
38If he comes in the second watch, or in the third, and finds them so, blessed are those servants!
39But know this, that if the householder had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have left his house to be broken into.
40You also must be ready; for the Son of man is coming at an unexpected hour."
