the now test


devotional post #2010

Luke 16:10-12

Luk 16:10 “The one who proves faithful in a very little is also faithful in much, and the one who is dishonest in a very little is also dishonest in much.
Luk 16:11 If then you haven’t been trustworthy in handling worldly wealth, who will entrust you with the true riches?
Luk 16:12 And if you haven’t been trustworthy with someone else’s property, who will give you your own?

the now test

We are being challenged to stop seeing money and possessions as merely a means to pursue happiness. Wealth and things are not true riches, those can come later. But if we are blessed with wealth and possessions, they might just be given us now for a test. We are being tested by wealth to see if we will be faithful with it. We cannot keep it; it is someone else’s. But if we manage it properly, investing it in those the Father wants to love, then the true riches will come later.

LORD, show us how to wisely invest all that you give us today, so that we are proved faithful stewards of it.
