Once I can be trusted with a little, THEN I can be trusted with a lot.
Time, treasures, and talents. What has God gifted you? Are you using it for His glory? Are you being responsible for what He has entrusted you with?
Our lesson for our kids this past week and month was all on responsibility. In particular, the story of the three people given money to use responsibly. The two, who put their passions to work and risked it all, and then to double the amount! And the third, who “played it safe” and buried it. Oh how he did disappoint. This parable and teaching of responsibility and using what you have been given struck such a chord with me as we began making this a bit easier for the kids to understand. Basically taking the whole “money” thing out of it.
Money is NOT the issue here.
But, using what God has given you is. The gifts that YOU have been granted to do God’s will in your life and to further His Kingdom and bring Him glory. Teaching kids is really teaching me. And of ALL lessons, I was very thankful to have a teacher teaching that I am constantly trying to teach too. Did that make sense? (one of my own) What a perfect lesson for us all.
