Yes, But When?

Re: Verse readingLuke 21:5-24 (day two)
“Teacher,” they asked, “when will these things happen? And what will be the sign that they are about to take place?  Certainly first-century human nature still resonates 20 centuries later.  If we are to endure hardship, we generally want to know when it’s coming.  Makes sense, doesn’t it?  How much time do we have to prepare? What do I have to do immediately?  But Jesus knows our nature better than we do.  He also knew/knows that if we were given a time and place we would also squander opportunities to love and serve.  Dave Ramsey has a slogan in his Financial Peace University that says “Live like no one else so one day you can LIVE like no one else.”  This is good financial stewardship, but it also make sense for how we govern our lives.  We shouldn’t live with the fear of imminent doom, but with the joy that one day Christ will restore and redeem.
