In the month of November, my youngest brother got married to his college girlfriend. It was a beautiful ceremony, and we are very excited for their new lives together. My brother honored me by asking me to speak a blessing over them at the wedding. I was very pleased to do so.

When I discovered what I was going to say, I realized the message was not only for the two newly weds. It was a practical message that has significant relevance for you and I. I shared on Jesus’ parable of the ten virgins. You can read Jesus’ entire allegory in Matthew 25:1-13.

Jesus spoke of five wise virgins and five foolish virgins. They were all waiting for the bridegroom to return with their oil lamps burning. However, while they waited the bridegroom was delayed. The five wise virgins had brought enough oil in their lamps to accommodate for the delay. The foolish ones were not prepared. While those who were foolish went to the store to buy more oil, the bridegroom returned and took the ones prepared into the wedding feast. The foolish ones were locked out and unable to enter the celebration.

This parable has many practical applications for us today. The wise virgins were looking for and anticipating the return of the bridegroom. The bridegroom represents Jesus. The foolish virgins were unprepared, distracted, and doing other things. As a result, they missed the most important event in human history. Stay focused!
