Ready or Not

This parable of the ten bridesmaids is puzzling because from childhood we are taught to share with others. With Jesus’ focus on loving one's neighbor, it would seem that the five bridesmaids with oil would share their oil with the five whose supply is short, but they do not. What is Jesus trying to tell us about our own lives, and especially about our own preparedness for the bridegroom?
