Stay awake!

August 27, 2020 3:30 am

“Stay awake! For you do not know on which day your Lord will come. Be sure of this: if the master of the house had known the hour of night when the thief was coming, he would have stayed awake and not let his house be broken into. So too, you also must be prepared, for at an hour you do not expect, the Son of Man will come.” (MT 24: 42-44)

This is part of our strategy from Program 1: Extreme Ownership, which means: be proactive, “be prepared,” take a lead, take responsibility. Love is based on actions, not emotions; love is a whole life attitude; love is being conscientious and focuses on another person—your spouse, your children, your friends, your relatives, your neighbors. “Stay awake” is about being able to recognize where and when to be proactive because we know why this is so important. 

“Stay awake!  For you do not know when the Son of Man will come.” (Gospel Acclamation)
