The way that I understand a parable is the use of a fictional story to illustrate a point. In this case, the point that is being illustrated is always being ready, because we do not know when Jesus will return. It has nothing to do with buying and selling; rather, the warning is to not put off coming to Christ by believing in Him and knowing Who He is! Follow Him. He will lead you to the narrow gate and hold it open for you that you may enter. Don’t go off searching for something you should have brought with you!
