    Stay Faithful, Wise, and Ready

    Post by GloryB on Tue Jun 10, 2008 4:39 pm

    Matthew 24:45-51

    45. Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?
    46. Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.
    47. Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.
    48. But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;
    49. And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;
    50. The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, (51) And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

    The parable of the faithful and evil servants admonishes us to be faithful and wise in carrying out responsibilities and relationships with our fellow servants, our brothers in the body of Christ.

    A faithful person is trustworthy, scrupulous, honest, upright, and truthful.

    In this context "wise" means judicious, prudent, sensible, showing sound judgment. It suggests an understanding of people and situations, showing unusual discernment and judgment in dealing with them. Just as Paul writes in I Thessalonians 5:6 about being self-controlled, Christ's use of "wise" indicates an exercising of restraint, using sound, practical wisdom and discretion, and acting in good sense and Godly rationality

    Thank you for such a nice article and I totally agree with you here that we have to be a sincere, loyal, trustworthy servant of Heavenly Father.

    God bless you and your family

    Matthew 24:46. Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.


    Amazing message, I heard something similar last night at Church...the key word: "doing"

    Philippians 4:9 Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.

    Are we "doer's" of the WORD?
