This Thought Provokers may help you meditate the Gospel for this Sunday,
Matthew 24:36-44

There is nothing so likely to produce peace
as to be well prepared to meet an enemy.

George Washington

Dig a well before you are thirsty.

Several years ago, United Press International told the story of a Midwestern hospital that had been built thirty-five years earlier. During an inspection, they learned that the fire-fighting equipment had never been connected. Never! The hoses had never been connected to the water line. They had everything necessary to fight fire–except water.

What is important is not that we should always fear (or hope for) the end
but that we should always remember, always take it into account.

An analogy may help.
A man of seventy need not be always feeling (much less talking about)
his approaching death:
but a wise man of seventy should always take it into account.
He would be foolish to embark on schemes
which presuppose twenty more years of life:
He would be criminally foolish not to make–
indeed, not to have made long since–his will.

Now, what death is to each man,
the second coming is to the whole human race.

William Barclay

There are no secrets to success.
It is the result of preparation, hard work,
and learning from failure.

General Colin L. Powell
