He gave five bags of silver to one, two bags of silver to another, and one bag of silver to the last—dividing it in proportion to their abilities. He then left on his trip. —Matthew 25:15
Are you and I truly using the abilities God proportioned to us? He has given us responsibility over a part of His property and resources. Are you and I investing them wisely? We will give an account to the Lord one day. “After a long time their master returned from his trip and called them to give an account of how they had used his money” (Matthew 25:19). Also in II Corinthians 5:10 we are told that “For we must all stand before Christ to be judged. We will each receive whatever we deserve for the good or evil we have done in this earthly body” (II Corinthians 5:10). May we hear those words from Jesus— “Well done, my good and faithful servant. You have been faithful in handling this small amount, so now I will give you many more responsibilities. Let’s celebrate together!” (Matthew 21).
Does the Lord what us to make adjustments of some sort in our service to Him? May we be obedient to His desires for us! http://www.movingworks.org/project/gary-peggy/ May we do what He desires in our lives. The impact will be amazing. May it be so!
Dear Father, may I seek to do Your will above all things. May this be done in the authority of Jesus and by the Holy Spirit’s desire.
