"For the kingdom of heaven is
as a man traveling into a far country,
who called his own servants,
and delivered unto them his goods.
And unto one he gave five talents,
to another two, and to another one;
to every man according to his several ability;
and straightway took his journey.
But he that had received one
went and digged in the earth,
and hid his lord's money."
Matthew 25:14,15,18
Pleasing Stewardship
In Christ's parable of the talents, He shows
not only what faithful stewardship is,
but also what it is not.
Three stewards received from their master
different amounts of money in trust.
Two of those stewards used the money wisely
and won the acclaim of the master:
"Well done, good and faithful servant."
They were good stewards!
The third steward was condemned by the master,
not because he had lost or stolen the money,
but because he had simply hoarded it.
He had done nothing with his talent.
He was discharged as a steward
unworthy of the trust.
God, who owns every thing, has given us all
we are and have . . .
material blessings, skills, opportunities,
and best of all,
the gift of the Savior, Jesus Christ.
We are not reservoirs in which
God wants to store all this.
We are channels through which these gifts
are to flow to His glory
and for the benefit of others.
May we use His gracious gifts wisely
and effectively,
giving thanks unto Him always,
as we bring glory and honor to His name.
