Sermon on Matthew 25:1-13. This week is thanksgiving and we thank the Lord that He has prepared us. Last week, the goats were not surprised that they were goats. They were surprised because they thought their works did something. The sheep weren’t surprised because they were sheep. They were surprised because they were counted righteous. Today we see another parable of no surprises. Ten maidens, five foolish and five wise. The wise virgins are not surprised when the bridegroom comes. They knew He was coming, but not exactly when. We give thanks that God has given to us what we need to know. He gives us the directions for our journey, and he comforts and feeds us along the way.
