Luke 19:26-27

Luke 19:26–27 (ESV): "26 'I tell you that to everyone who has, more will be given, but from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away. 27 But as for these enemies of mine, who did not want me to reign over them, bring them here and slaughter them before me.' " 

Stewardship is a privileged position and should never be taken lightly. What you are entrusted with comes with an expectation of fairhfulness. Christians have been entrusted with the good news of the kingdom and those who steward it well will be rewarded handsomely.

A parable is an earthly story with a heavenly meaning. Jesus used them to communicate kingdom principles to those around Him. One parable He gave was the parable of the ten minas. The story is about a nobleman who went away and entrusted ten servants with ten minas (about three months' wages for a laborer). They were expected to invest well and make a return. When He return those who were faithful were given more and those who weren't, even what they had was taken from them for they were not faithful with what they had been entrusted.

When Jesus returns will He find a yield from the Gospel He has entrusted you with? Have you been given investing the Good News in the lives of others? The call to stewardship comes with an expectation of faithfulness, so be faithful Christian. When Christ returns may He receive far more from you than what He originally entrusted you with. Amen?

Father, we thank You for giving us a future and a hope! All praise to You for who You are and all You've done. Help us to be faithful with the Gospel and invest it well that it might grow a yield and amazing return for Your glory we pray in Jesus name, amen.
