|We are still continuing with Christs’ Return, and which we have dubbed: Ready for His Return! Enjoy!|
SCRIPTURE TEXT: “Again the Kingdom of Heaven can be illustrated by the story of a man going on a long trip. He called together his servants and entrusted his money to them while he was gone. 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” (Mathew 25:14-15 NLT)
The master divided the money among his servants according to their abilities. No one received more or less then he could handle. If he failed in his assignment, his excuse could not be that he was overwhelmed. Failure would indicate only laziness or hatred toward the master. The bags of silver represent any kind of resource we are given. God gives us time, gifts, and other resources according to our abilities, and he expects us to invest them wisely until He returns. We are responsible to use well what God has given us. The issue is not how much we have but how well we use what we have.
Jesus is coming back-we know this is true. Does this mean we must quit our jobs to serve God? No, it means we are to use our time, talents, and treasures diligently in order to serve God completely in whatever we do. For a few people, this may mean changing professions. For most of us, it means doing our daily work out of love for God..
