Read Luke 16 – Make the most of every opportunity.
We saw the film Sabina last night. She and her husband, Richard, were missionaries in Romania through Nazi occupation followed by the Russian rule. They were Jewish by birth, married as atheist, and converts to Christianity. One of the first things they did as new believers was introduce themselves to their neighbors, bringing gifts. It took love and persistence to form relationships during the uncertain times.
That is what Jesus is expecting of us when he commends the manager for shrewdness. “I tell you, make friends for yourself by means of unrighteous wealth, so that when it fails they may receive you into the eternal dwellings, :9. Beloved, pursue people with every resource. Love them with the love of Christ. You have Good News to share; be shrewd and make the most of every opportunity.
Be faithful in little things. I love that. We all want to do amazing things, just start with the little things and trust Jesus… he knows your heart and what you can be entrusted with.
Be eternity minded. Lazarus got it, but the rich man did not. Success in this life can blind a person. Beloved, keep your eyes on the prize.🏆👆🌎🙏🌏👆🏆
