2 - Do we think more about when things will happen instead of how we can be prepared for them?

The disciples wanted to know when the temple would be destroyed, when Jesus would return (v3)? How much do we focus on when things will happen instead of being prepared for them?

Yes this resonates with me too. The "when" for me often takes over any preparation I may need to do!

I came across this in a commentary on 1 Thessalonians that I find helpful - and challenging:

Perhaps most importantly, Paul reminds the readers repeatedly that the work of God begun in them in Christ will not be complete until Christ returns. They can therefore look forward to his return with great expectancy, remembering that even death itself will then be utterly defeated, and living each moment in faithfulness as they await the fulfillment of their relationship with Christ.

Jon A. Weatherly, 1 & 2 Thessalonians, The College Press NIV Commentary (Joplin, MO: College Press Pub. Co., 1996).
