Thought For Today – October 31
What Are We Doing For the Lord?
What are we doing for the Lord? Are we using the resources and gifts which God has bestowed upon us for his glory and honor, or are we misusing them for our own glory, or are we hiding them in the ground as did the servant mentioned by Christ in the gospel of Matthew Chapter 25: 14-30?
We have all been given talents and abilities, all different according to the will of God. Some day we will be asked, where is the talent and ability that was given to you? According to what we have done, and how we have trusted and obeyed, and according to our faithfulness or unfaithfulness we will have to answer to our Lord.
How wonderful on that day would it be for our Lord to put his hand on our shoulder and say to us, well done thou good and faithful servant. But how ashamed we will be if we are found empty handed at that day with no crowns to place at our savior's feet.
Let each of us, therefore “Take heed to the ministry which thou hast received in the Lord, that thou fulfill it.” Colossians 4:17.
