Faithfulness Now Increases Responsibility Later

Read: Matthew 24:36-51

A good financial planner doesn’t keep the money he receives from his clients. He invests it wisely so he can present his clients with more than they had before. In the same way, we’re responsible to invest what God has given us.

When Jesus left the earth, He put each of us in charge of a portion of His resources. Jesus is coming back, and in Matthew 24, Jesus compares His return with a master who left his servants in charge of his household. Like the master in the story, Jesus will hold us accountable for what we’ve been given. Those God can trust to use money wisely will be given more, and those He can’t trust will be given less. God’s not picking favorites. He wants His wealth to be used to make the most impact before Jesus comes back.

If a financial planner pockets his clients’ money, he won’t be in business for long. The same is true for us. God tends to give more wealth to people who are using it for His kingdom, not just for themselves. When we are faithful with a little, it shows we can be faithful with a lot.

 

Think About:

1. If you were your own financial planner, would you fire yourself? Why or why not?

2. How have you been faithful with what you’ve been given?

3. What are three ways you can begin to be faithful with a little to prepare for being faithful with a lot?

 

Pray:

Jesus, thank You for trusting me with Your wealth. Show me how You want me to invest it so You get the most glory.
