House-sitters watch over a beautifully constructed home. While the walls pulse from the beat of the music, some eat, some drink, some laugh. One cleans. Instantly, the floor quakes, the walls and windows clatter, objects fall and break, and a powerful wind rushes through the building. All but the one cleaning are thrown to the ground. Desperate, they cry in terror.
The wind blows open the curtain of the window and the Master peeks through the window. Still standing, the one who had been cleaning sees his Master. The Master winks. The servant winks back. What glory it is to be found standing on “one of the days of the Son of Man!” (Luke 17:22)
When the clattering calms down, those on the ground cry out, “What was that?!” The servant smiles.
