“Give us some of your oil; our lamps are going out.” (Matthew 25:8)
No one else can live your spiritual life for you. No one else can read your Scriptures, no one else can offer your prayers, and no one else can engage with God in the silence and stillness of your own heart. You must do it, or it will not be done.
Those around you can encourage you to have oil of your own, but, ultimately, whether or not you have any when the time comes is completely up to you. No one else can give you their oil; you are responsible for that yourself. So make sure you have enough, even if the bridegroom is a long time in coming.
