Devotional – Luke 17:31-37

31 “In that day, he who is on the housetop, and his [a]goods are in the house, let him not come down to take them away. And likewise the one who is in the field, let him not turn back. 32 Remember Lot’s wife. 33 Whoever seeks to save his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life will preserve it. 34 I tell you, in that night there will be two [b]men in one bed: the one will be taken and the other will be left. 35 Two women will be grinding together: the one will be taken and the other left. 36 [c]Two men will be in the field: the one will be taken and the other left.”

37 And they answered and said to Him, “Where, Lord?”

So He said to them, “Wherever the body is, there the eagles will be gathered together.”

Luke 17:31-37

Here Christ alludes to what will happen at His return.  That who value their life and possession will remain behind while those who follow Christ will be taken in an instant.  Whoever remains will be subject to the natural order as vultures circle overhead because the time to turn to God and seek salvation has passed.
