Greetings to you all in the matchless name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We are living in a “selfie” world where the attention is drawn to ourselves. We strive to possess what we can call our own. My friends, my mobile, my possessions, my money etc. we think that it is because of our hard work that we were able to buy a house that we can call our own. But the Bible says that we own nothing. Eccl. 5:15 says we all come to the end of our lives as naked and empty handed as on the day we were born. We can't take our riches with us. Michael Huffington so clearly puts it “when we die our money, fame, and honor will be meaningless. We own nothing in this world. Everything we think we own is in reality only being loaned to us until we die. And on our deathbed at the moment of death, no one but God can save our souls. “Everything we have is given to us by God. Unless we recognize this truth we will not be good managers of what has been entrusted to us. When we think about our life, we must realize that it does not belong to us but has been given to us by God who is our creator. We want to be faithful in using the gifts we have received from God. Every wise manager is looking for those who are good at what they do in order to put them in charge of more. It's a principle in life, it's about effectiveness. Jesus speaks of this principle in Mat. 25:21, “well done good and faithful servant.” Responsible behavior in small matters leads to having responsibility over more. What we are responsible for? What does someone trust us to do today? Whatever it is, do it well –today, tomorrow, and the next day. Trust is something we earn every day. God entrusts each of us with many things – our work, our possessions, our time, and our relationships. What kind of return is God getting on these from us? Part of the beauty of the Christian life is that the risen, living Christ longs to come into our lives. Christ wants to empower us to make faith filled decisions that lead to positive returns so that God's Kingdom may grow in us and throughout the world. We can live focused days, empowered by the indwelling Christ, choosing with His help to pay attention to what really matters. Then we will be able to hear God say, “well done, good and faithful servant”.а

Yours Loving,а
