In this dark and foreboding story, Jesus wants us to be prepared. The story itself is meant to be some preparation. What reactions does the story evoke in you? How does it make you feel about the 5 wise bridesmaids? The 5 foolish bridesmaids? The bridegroom? What might those things teach you about who you are and who God is calling you to be in preparation for the Day of the LORD?
