Jesus said the kingdom of heaven “will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants and entrusted to them his property.” Think about that. God trusted us with his property. “To some he gave five talents, to another two, to another one, each according to his ability” (Matthew 25:14-15).
That means we are God’s money managers. Furthermore, Jesus is coming back to settle accounts with us. So what are you doing with the measure God has entrusted to you? Are you using his resources to grow his kingdom?
On the day Jesus returns, some will hear, “You wicked and slothful servant!” Others will hear, “Well done, good and faithful servant.”
