Queerying 9th after Pentecost C

Rev. Emily E. Ewing queeries the Gospel reading.
ID: gray cargo shorts, unzipped and partially open at the top lay wrinkled but flat with the words "LESBIAN PURSE" in purple.
Gospel: Luke 12:32-40
Jesus said:
32“Do not be afraid, little flock, for it is your Caregiver’s good pleasure to give you the reign. 33Sell your possessions, and give alms. Make purses for yourselves that do not wear out, an unfailing treasure in heaven, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys. 34For where your wealth is, there your heart also will find itself.

35“Be dressed for action and have your lamps lit; 36be like those who are waiting for their enslaver to return from the wedding banquet, so that they may open the door for him as soon as he comes and knocks. 37Blessed are those people who are enslaved whom the enslaver finds alert when he comes; truly I tell you, he will fasten his belt and have them sit down to eat, and he will come and serve them. 38If the enslaver comes during the middle of the night, or near dawn, and finds them so, blessed are those people who are enslaved.

39“But know this: if the owner of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, they would not have let their house be broken into. 40You also must be ready, for the Human One is coming at an unexpected hour.”

Queeries for the text:
Who has a little flock?
When else does Jesus promise us influence over our hearts?
How do you dress for action?
What happens if we are not hypervigilant?
Who else has their lamps lit?
Do enslavers ever serve people who are enslaved?
Who stays out all night for weddings?
When do thieves come?

What are your queeries?
