We’re Ready!

Many communities have signs along the road advertising that they are a “Storm Ready County” or a “Work Ready Community”. Sometimes both of these signs are displayed at the same location.

I suppose that they want to convey the message that they are prepared to meet the needs of people in the community should a devastating storm blow through. There are teams of first responders who have been well-trained and are ready at a moment’s notice to render any kind of aid that is necessary to people who need help in the aftermath of the storm.

As for the advertisement that they are work ready, I take that to mean that they offer educational opportunities to prepare people in their area for both white collar and blue collar jobs. Perhaps it also indicates that their local government is ready to offer incentives to any company that is willing to bring jobs to their community.

All of this is well and good, but there is another question about readiness that must be posed to any community—Are you ready for the second coming of Jesus?

“Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come.”—Matthew 24:42.
