Therefore be you also ready: for in such an hour as you think not the Son of man comes.
"Mamma," said a child, "my Sunday-school teacher tells me that this world is only a place in which God lets us live a little while, that we may prepare for a better world; but, mother, I do not See anybody preparing. I see you preparing to go into the country, and Aunt Eliza is preparing to come here; but I do not see any one preparing to go to heaven. If everybody wants to go there, why don't they try to get ready?"
Parallel VersesKJV: Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
