Matthew 24

  40 "Two men will be working together in the field; one will be taken, the other left.41 Two women will be grinding flour at the mill; one will be taken, the other left.
  42 "So you, too, must keep watch! For you don't know what day your Lord is coming.43 Understand this: If a homeowner knew exactly when a burglar was coming, he would keep watch and not permit his house to be broken into.44 You also must be ready all the time, for the Son of Man will come when least expected.
  45 "A faithful, sensible servant is one to whom the master can give the responsibility of managing his other household servants and feeding them.46 If the master returns and finds that the servant has done a good job, there will be a reward.47 I tell you the truth, the master will put that servant in charge of all he owns.48 But what if the servant is evil and thinks, 'My master won't be back for a while,'49 and he begins beating the other servants, partying, and getting drunk?50 The master will return unannounced and unexpected,51 and he will cut the servant to pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

I loved the New Living Translation when it first came out because it made the Word of God more accessible. We made it our pew Bible at Grace Pointe. Now that its even better for study, I am anticipating an even greater impact on our congregation!
