This week’s Bible reading is from Matthew 24:36-44

When is Jesus coming back?

I dunno.

No, really. Isn’t there some way to predict that it is coming soon? What about all the stuff going on in the world. Isn’t Jesus coming back really soon?

I dunno.

You’re not being helpful at all. What about those books that talk about all kinds of ‘end-of-the-world’ things that say that they come right out of the Bible. Isn’t Jesus bound to come back soon? I mean, the books say that it’s coming soon. When is Jesus coming back?

I dunno.

So what should I do?

Keep awake. Do the things that Jesus wants you to do. Love God. Love everyone else. Because about that “when is Jesus coming back?” stuff – you dunno either.
