December 7th is synonymous in the United States with the “date that will live on in infamy”. In 1941, the Japanese Navy launched a surprise attack against the US Navy station in Hawaii. As waves of aircraft bombed the facility the course of history was changed. The Americans would enter WWII and a nation would remember a fateful day.
What made the attack on Pearl Harbor so atrocious is that we were unprepared. We were caught off guard. As a Christian I cannot help of thinking on this day of another Day that is coming for all humanity. The Final return of Jesus will happen and sadly many will not be prepared. Even many self-identified Christians are not prepared for the return of Jesus. Jesus illustrated the importance of preparation by a series of parables in Matthew 24 and 25. Preparation completely changes your perspective on the Return of Jesus.
