Matthew 24:42-46Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

42 Therefore be alert, since you don’t know what day[a] your Lord is coming. 43 But know this: If the homeowner had known what time[b] the thief was coming, he would have stayed alert and not let his house be broken into. 44 This is why you also must be ready, because the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.

Faithful Service to the Messiah

45 “Who then is a faithful and sensible slave, whom his master has put in charge of his household, to give them food at the proper time? 46 That slave whose master finds him working when he comes will be rewarded.
