Do That for You
We may be pleased when someone offers to help us, and we should be pleased to help someone else. For generations, the Boy Scout pledge has included a promise to be helpful to other people, and one of the twelve points of the Scout Law is to be helpful. Yet, the downfall of five foolish virgins at the Twenty Fifth of Matthew was due to their expectation of others to do for them what they had failed to do for themselves. Even had they been willing to do so, the five wise virgins could not do for the five foolish what only they could do and were responsible to do. Though the Savior did for you on the cross what you could not do for yourself, you have a profound responsibility to your eternal soul to be prepared. No one else can do that for you.
