Jesus looks for the faithful and wise manager

Posted by admin on 21 April 2013 in Luke |

Luke 12:42

 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?

Jesus looks for the faithful and wise manager.

To be faithful, we have to be trustworthy to be entrusted with the task. Can you make commitment to the task given by the Lord? This commitment includes as many hours as required to complete the task in regular basis. It might cost half of your Saturday to prepare a message that will be preached on Sunday. It might cost hours of daily research to ensure the satisfactory quality of the weekly message. Are you faithful?

Regarding to ‘being wise’, Ephesians 5:15 – 17 says

   15 Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, 16 making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. 17 Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is. 

This teaches that being wise means being efficient by making the most of every opportunity & being aligned to the Lord’s will.

To be wise, we have to spend our time and other resources in the most effective way. We have to pray and listen to the God’s word. Are you wise?

Jesus puts the faithful and wise manager in charge of his servants to give them their food allowance at the proper time (Luke 12:42b).

Are you the manager Jesus looks for? Then, answer “Yes, Lord, here I am”.
