Jesus tells another parable about the wedding feast. Ten bridesmaids are given lamps to light the way for the bridegroom to a wedding feast. Five of the bridesmaids bring oil to relight their lamps and five do not. The five who forget the oil are not prepared for the return of the bridegroom and so are unable to get into the wedding feast. The lit lamps serve as a symbol for service and good works. We are to commit to service on a regular basis because it prepares us for Jesus.
