5 The LORD is my chosen portion and my cup; You have made my lot secure.Psalm 16:5
Parable of the Shrewd Manager
Management as a service. We are to be servant-leaders just as Jesus was the Good Shepherd [John 10:11]
35 Be dressed for service and keep your lamps burning.Luke 12:35-37
36 Then you will be like servants waiting for their master to return from the wedding banquet, so that when he comes and knocks, they can open the door for him at once.
37 Blessed are those servants whom the master finds on watch when he returns. Truly I tell you, he will dress himself to serve and will have them recline at the table, and he himself will come and wait on them
We are entrusted with the wealth of God, His Word, wisdom and teachings, psalms, parables, proverbs, promises and prophecy, as His property managers and temporary stewards, the shepherds of His holy flock, until the day Christ finally returns. Maranatha.
41 Peter asked, “Lord, are you telling this parable to us, or to everyone?”Luke 12:41-43
42 The Lord answered, “Who then is the faithful and wise manager, whom the master puts in charge of his servants to give them their food allowance at the proper time?
43 It will be good for that servant whom the master finds doing so when he returns.
Lord, let us be mindful, watchful and faithful for the things that the world considers the littlest and least, the lost and last
“One who is faithful in a very little is also faithful in much, and one who is dishonest in a very little is also dishonest in much.Luke 16
If then you have not been faithful in the unrighteous wealth, who will entrust to you the true riches?”
40 And the King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of Mine, you did for Me.’Matthew 25:40
