The daily news is depressing. There is rarely good news and knowing what is happening around the world brings fear. Jesus instructed us how to live during these last days.
Keep your head, don’t panic.
Matthew 24:6, “…keep your head and don’t panic.” The Message
Matthew 24:21, “There is going to be trouble on a scale beyond what the world has ever seen, or will see again.” The Message
Plan and prepare.
Matthew 25:1-4, “God’s kingdom is like ten young virgins who took oil lamps and went out to greet the bridegroom. Five were silly and five were smart. The silly virgins took lamps, but no extra oil. The smart virgins took jars of oil to feed their lamps.” The Message
You won’t miss His second coming.

Do your best.
Matthew 25: 26, “The master was furious. ‘That’s a terrible way to live! It’s criminal to live cautiously like that! If you knew I was after the best why did you do less than the least?’ ” The Message
The least you can do is save some money.
Matthew 25:27, “The least you could have done would have been to invest the sum with the bankers, where at least I would have gotten a little interest.” The Message
Work to double your investments.
Matthew 25: 20, 22, “The one given five thousand dollars showed him how he had doubled his investment….The servant with the two thousand showed how he also had doubled his master’s investment.” The Message
We work for God. All our gifts, talents, and money come from Him. We are just His stewards.
