His lord shall make ruler over his household, t give them their portion of meat in due season? 43 Blessed is that servant, wom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. O a truth I say unto you, tat he will make him ruler over all that he hath. Bt and if that servant say in his heart, M lord delayeth his coming; ad shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, ad to eat and drink, ad to be drunken; Te lord of that servant will come a day when he looketh not for him, ad at an hour when he is not aware, ad will cut him in sunder, ad will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers.

Te date maybe unknown and that event could happen anytime, bt the watchful servant always acts, bhaves, wrks, ad exemplifies the Christian values to please the Lord.

A the Lord is perceived to come like a thief of a night, tose servants who remained watchful in waiting can promptly open the door for the Master.
