Luke 12:35-40 Common English Bible (CEB)

Warning about being prepared

35 “Be dressed for service and keep your lamps lit. 36  Be like people waiting for their master to come home from a wedding celebration, who can immediately open the door for him when he arrives and knocks on the door. 37  Happy are those servants whom the master finds waiting up when he arrives. I assure you that, when he arrives, he will dress himself to serve, seat them at the table as honored guests, and wait on them. 38  Happy are those whom he finds alert, even if he comes at midnight or just before dawn.[a] 39  But know this, if the homeowner had known what time the thief was coming, he wouldn’t have allowed his home to be broken into. 40  You also must be ready, because the Human One[b] is coming at a time when you don’t expect him.”
