Reflection: 1st Sunday of Advent

What struck me most from this reading were these lines: “Beware that your hearts do not become drowsy/ from carousing and drunkenness/ and the anxieties of daily life,/ and that day catch you by surprise like a trap.” The reading stated that we should always be on guard and that we shouldn’t be caught sleeping because the kingdom of God will come when we least expect it. It invites us to avoid sin and follow the good as well as to be ready when the son of man returns. The gospel reading on this day made me more aware of the authority of God over my life. I saw this by the fact that only he knows the date and time that the world will end and that he is the one who holds the book of our lives and knows the choices and thoughts we have made.
