It was the most talked about wedding in years.

The bridegroom was on everybody’s lips as they eagerly awaited his coming.

Soon.

The moral of this story told in Scripture? You will reach higher if you prepare. All that it takes might be just some extra oil.

The story of this wedding comes from the parable of the wise and foolish virgins. It is found in Matthew 25. Jesus states that the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to 10 virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom.

Five of them were said to be foolish. However, they did not know at the time that they were foolish. It became obvious later. Every virgin thought that the bridegroom would come at the announced time. For some reason, he was delayed.

Reaching midnight, all 10 virgins had fallen at sleep. Then, a cry was heard. This was the signal they all had been waiting for, “The bridegroom is coming!” Have you ever experienced waking up suddenly, not actually knowing where you are, and not really thinking straight? Five of them had such a moment now. As they started trimming their lamps, they realized they were about to run out of oil. The lamps would not last shining through the night.

The five foolish virgins knew where to buy extra oil, although not many shops were still open passed midnight. They had the needed finances. They hurried back and forth as fast as they could, only to discover that the bridegroom had passed the waiting point. He had already entered the wedding building. Knocking eagerly at the main entrance, even speaking with the bridegroom personally, the only answer they received was “I do not know you!”
