“Not Again, Please” : A homily on Matthew 25
The Parable of the 10 Bridemaids seems simple at first: some are wise and others are foolish. The lesson from this text seems simple too: be wise, don't be foolish. But what happens when we become too focused on being wise and prepared? Do we overdo it and become more focused on preparation and less on who God is calling us to be? In this homily, Rev. Ben explores this parable as a glimpse of who God is and who God is calling us to be as God's people.
