BE A FAITHFUL AND WISE MANAGER OF WHAT HE HAS GIVEN YOU!
You also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect. —Luke 12:40
And the Lord said, “Who then is the faithful and wise manager, whom his master will set over his household, to give them their portion of food at the proper time? Blessed is that servant whom his master will find so doing when he comes.” —Luke 12:42-43
Everyone to whom much was given, of him much will be required, and from him to whom they entrusted much, they will demand the more. —Luke 12:48
You hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of earth and sky, but why do you not know how to interpret the present time? —Luke 12:57
Nobody knows the exact time and yet we should be able to see what is happening in our time and be able to interpret what is going on. Even though we may not be able to know the exact “hour” our Lord is coming, we can have an idea of how close we are getting. Jesus gave us signs that would point toward the approaching end. As we look at our world today we surely are so much closer to His coming. Could it be in our life-time? Of course it could be!
But whether or not His coming is in our life-time we should be ready at all times to meet Him. We may be alive when Jesus comes back or we may die before He does. Either way let us be ready to meet Him! So let us be a “faithful and wise manager, whom his master will set over his household” to serve until we meet Him. Yes, with the much He has given us, much is expect from us upon His return. So let us be faithful about His business with faithful stewardship— His property oversight He has given to each who have called upon His Name.
So what is the responsibility He has given you? What are the “good works He has prepared beforehand” for you that you should be faithful in? (Ephesians 2:10). May you and I be faithful and wise managers of what He has given to each of us. Oh yes, Dear Father, may this be so by the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Your Beloved Son Jesus. Oh, that I might hear— “Well done, good and faithful servant.” That would be enough for me. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X29hPMgKUyM
