How do you rate regarding using the resources God has entrusted to your care?
In Matt.25, Jesus used a parable to discuss how we will be held accountable for the faithful or unfaithful use of our resources from God.
One person received five talents, one two, and the other one talent.
Talents are more than money, but invaluable entrustments for kingdom building (this could include money, spiritual gifts, and other resources you have to expand the kingdom).
"Now after a long time the master of those slaves came and settled accounts with them.
20 "The one who had received the five talents came up and brought five more talents, saying, 'Master, you entrusted five talents to me. See, I have gained five more talents.'
21 "His master said to him, 'Well done, good and faithful slave. You were faithful with a few things, I will put you in charge of many things; enter into the joy of your master... (Matt. 25:19-31).
Christians, use your resources to do good for Christ's sake each day (Eph. 2:10), and expect to hear Him say: well done good and faithful servant.
