“Again, it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants and entrusted his wealth to them.” (Matthew 25:14)
The resources that we have as individuals, and in companies that we own, or work for, are merely entrusted to us. We don’t really own them; they are on loan to us. A return is required, both in physical and spiritual terms. Are we good stewards, do we exercise wisdom and reject the sense of entitlement that so often pervades our thinking?
It is an honor to serve the King and do deal well and wisely with all He has entrusted into our care.
Quick Prayer. “Thank you for entrusting me with so much.” Amen
“The LORD has blessed my master abundantly, and he has become wealthy. He has given him sheep and cattle, silver and gold, male and female servants, and camels and donkeys.” (Genesis 24:35)
Do not be ashamed of the financial blessing God has bestowed on you. It is He who blesses with wealth in all its forms. If you are struggling do not be ashamed in asking for His blessing. He is not a stingy God.
God is an abundant God, the God of “more than enough”. Take a moment to thank him for all that He has given you. Take a close look around and you will see all that He has bestowed on you.
Use your wealth wisely, submit it to God and be obedient to His promptings but enjoy that which He has given you to enjoy.
Quick Prayer. “Thank you that wealth is a blessing. Please bless me in my finances.” Amen
“For from him and through him and for him are all things. To him be the glory forever! Amen.” (Romans 11:36)
Wow, here it is; the core of our reason for being, for serving, for Him, all that we have, all that we are, every blessing, every day. All comes from Him. We barely grasp the true meaning of what it is to be a Son or Daughter of the King.
All things were created for Him, and by Him, that He be glorified forever. If all that we have is His, it should all be dedicated to Him, for His use. What do we have in our hand we would struggle to give away? Where is the waste in resources, in time, in finances?
If only we would view our lives from an eternal perspective, how different would our world be?
Quick Prayer. “Help me to be a better steward Lord.” Amen
