His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.’
It’s a great feeling to achieve success after you’ve worked hard on a task or an important goal. You find a sense of pride, satisfaction, and even contentment. But these feelings don’t compare to the joy felt when we fulfill God’s unique plan for our lives.
If you believe the Bible, then you know that Jesus is coming back. But this doesn’t mean we have to quit our day jobs to serve Him. We’re to use our time, talents, and treasures in whatever we do, every day out of our love for God.
As we work, remember that it’s not about how much we earn, but our faithfulness in utilizing the potential God has given us. When we show God that we can be good stewards of what we’ve been given in this life, we’ll have even greater responsibilities and stewardship in our eternal lives.
Are you fully utilizing what God has given you in this life?
