Jesus warns us in today’s Gospel that we must be alert for his coming again: ‘Take heed that you are not led astray...’ We must have our eyes set on Heaven, our homeland. At the same time , we need to have our feet firmly planted on the earth.  Our work will be an opportunity to give glory to God here on earth.  Our work will lead us to God if we ask Him for help in what we are doing and offer it up for our family and friends.  We will be able to keep our eyes on heaven because we will be close to Jesus each day.

An elderly woman had just returned to her home from an evening of religious service when she was startled by an intruder.
As she caught the man in the act of robbing her home of its valuables, she yelled “Stop!  Acts 2:38!” (Turn from your sin)
The burglar stopped dead in his tracks.
Then the woman calmly called the police and explained what she had done.
As the officer cuffed the man to take him in, he asked the burglar, “Why did you just stand there?
All the old lady did was yell a scripture at you.”
“Scripture?”  Replied the burglar, “She said she had an axe and two 38s!”
