Re:Verse passage – Luke 16:1-18 (day four)
“Therefore if you have not been faithful in the use of unrighteous wealth, who will entrust the true riches to you? (V.11)
We may not have great wealth and riches…the disciples certainly did not. They probably figured Jesus was not talking to them with this parable. He was talking to all of us though. If we are not faithful with little, Jesus says we will not be faithful if our circumstances change and we have a lot. Our basic character will not change just because our circumstances are different.
Extend this parable beyond money. How have we stewarded the gospel message? Have we invested it into the lives of others? Or, have we held the gospel to ourselves and not been faithful to share with others? God will hold believers accountable for the true riches they possess. The gospel should be shared and invested . We are stewards of God’s message of forgiveness and salvation. Be faithful to share the good news!
