Episode #: 58   Parables   (Part 6: Watch!) 

This episode, from Luke 12:35-48 in the Bible, examines the issue of watchfulness. It starts with the tragic story of unbelievable carelessness that led to one of America’s greatest tragedies: the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor that plunged the US into WW II. In the Bible story, Jesus contrasts servants who are watchful and obedient, versus those who are careless and rebellious. It closes with some key life principles, that the more we know and have, the more responsible we are to use those blessings wisely.  

Word of the Day: watchfulness (n.) the state of actively watching and observing one’s surroundings, to be aware of what is going on and what could be a potential threat or opportunity

Question of the Day: What is one relationship or area of your life where you would benefit from more watchfulness?
