Devotionals Daily: A Year with Jesus

 

From Sanctuary by David Jeremiah

Faithful over Few, Ruler over Many

Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. - Matthew 25:21

God owns everything and has decided to put some of it into our hands to manage. When the Lord looks down and sees an individual doing a good job administering a few things, He decides to put that individual in charge of a few more things. God evaluates our steward ship on the basis of how well we administer it, keeping His priorities in mind rather than our own. When He sees someone serving faithfully, He expands the responsibility, giving something else to be managed. But when He sees someone who manages God’s resources based on a personal agenda, or who forgets to reflect the Spirit of God in his management, the Lord can choose to withhold any further responsibility.

That’s why Jesus, in explaining the parable of the talents in Matthew 25:21, said, “Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things.”
