1 Thessalonians 5:1-6 MSG

1 I don't think, friends, that I need to deal with the question of when all this is going to happen.
2 You know as well as I that the day of the Master's coming can't be posted on our calendars. He won't call ahead and make an appointment any more than a burglar would.
3 About the time everybody's walking around complacently, congratulating each other - "We've sure got it made! Now we can take it easy!" - suddenly everything will fall apart. It's going to come as suddenly and inescapably as birth pangs to a pregnant woman.
4 But friends, you're not in the dark, so how could you be taken off guard by any of this?
5 You're sons of Light, daughters of Day. We live under wide open skies and know where we stand.
6 So let's not sleepwalk through life like those others. Let's keep our eyes open and be smart.
