Ten Virgins

The morale of the parable of the ten virgins is that one must be prepared for eternity, not that time is all we have. I am really having trouble distinguishing the message of this homily, despite its religious trappings, from the classic atheist injunction to make the time you have worthwhile because it's all you have. Am I missing something here, or has this priest lost his faith?
