Unexpected

"A Japanese attack on Hawaii is regarded as the most unlikely thing in the world, with one chance in a million of being successful. Besides saving more powerful defenses than any other post under the American flag, it is protected by distance."
(Gordon Prange, At Dawn We Slept, quoting journalist Clarke Beach from Sept. 6, 1941).
The reason why we often are unprepared is because we deem certain things as trivial or unexpected. Are you prepared for a car accident? Only if you buckle up 100% of the time. Are you prepared for a financial cirsis? Only if you have money (right now) in the savings account. Are you prepared for a flood? Only if you live on high ground or own a boat. Are you prepared for Jesus? Only...
"Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of man is coming at an hour when you do not expect Him" (Matt. 24:44)
