Watch, for ye know neither the day nor the hour

Daily Light Devotions - June 3 - Morning

Watch, for ye know neither the day nor the hour.

Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour. 1

"But watch yourselves lest your hearts be weighed down with dissipation and drunkenness and cares of this life, and that day come upon you suddenly like a trap. For it will come upon all who dwell on the face of the whole earth. But stay awake at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are going to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man." 2

For you yourselves are fully aware that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, "There is peace and security," then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. But you are not in darkness, brothers, for that day to surprise you like a thief. For you are all children of light, children of the day. We are not of the night or of the darkness. So then let us not sleep, as others do, but let us keep awake and be sober. 3

1 Matt 25:13;
2 Luke 21:34-36;
3 1 Thess 5:2-6
