“So he called ten of his servants and gave them ten minas. ‘Put this money to work,’ he said, ‘until I come back.’…The first one came and said, ‘Sir, your mina has earned ten more.’ ‘Well done, my good servant!’ his master replied. ‘Because you have been trustworthy in a very small matter, take charge of ten cities.’”
Luke 19:13, 16-17
Good stewardship of our spiritual gifts and financial resources will be rewarded in God’s kingdom. There is accountability for what God has entrusted to us. We will all have our conversation with the King. Knowing what we have been given is our first priority. Living with kingdom values as we invest our resources, relationships, gifts and capacity into Christ’s mission and commission must be our priority! The reward for good faith-filled stewardship of what we’ve been given (health, family, vision, faith and so much more) is much greater than we ever imagined. Jesus calls us to lead cities in his kingdom. No assignment is too small to ignore good stewardship.
Lord Jesus, thank you for all I’ve been given. I desire to live with risk-taking obedience as a faithful steward, for your glory.

Good afternoon to all! I pray that our Lord continues to bless each and everyone of you. As for me, I am still going through my journey. Life is full of ups and downs but lately, it’s been mostly down for me. The words today from Pastor Rick Warren reminds me that it isn’t about me and my struggles in life. It is about Jesus and what I can do for my God that has done everything for me. You may say “how can he say that when he just said that life has been a struggle” and you would be right to question me. My response is this… no matter how low I get, someone is going thru something worst than me. No matter how lost i feel in this world, in Jesus I have hope. I am secured. I am guaranteed. I pray that we all have this feeling with Christ.
If you have any questions about ANY of this, please ask them. We are all here to bring God the glory. Have a great rest of the day. In Jesus name… PJSLB
Its all about perspective. In this time we live in, we need to be the loving face of Christ. Remember the other person feels they are “right” just as much as you. PJSLB
While in Washington D.C. on a business trip, I saw this and it was just something that moved me. As I was siting in the park waiting for my hotel shuttle, I overheard a little boy wanting to play catch with his dad. I hear the dad agree and soon afterwards I hear the sound of a football traveling in the air. I look up and my jaw dropped when I saw the”dad” who was throwing the ball. It was an old man around his late 50’s and he was wearing suit. Now mind you, this wasn’t a cheap suit you can get for for $100.00. This was a high quality suit. It warmed my heart to see a dad take time out of his busy schedule to put a smile on his sons face. I guarantee that it will be dry-cleaned by the end of the week. What an example of taking time for the important things in life.
