Matthew 24: 45 – 46 – ‘Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom the master has put in charge of the servants in his household to give them their food at the proper time? It will be good for that servant whose master finds him doing so when he returns.’
Read the full parable up until verse 51. We do not know when Jesus will return, but we do know that He is watching over us, always. What does this mean? That our motives should always be pure.
Our desire for wealth should be because we want to use it for God’s benefit. This could be to provide biblical resources, to feed the hungry, clothe the poor or in another way reach the lost.
There is nothing wrong with Christians being wealthy; in fact this is perhaps one of the best ways for God to get things done on this earth! We must be stewards of our wealth 100% of the time, aware that Christ could return at any time and that he sees our actions and motives every time.
Wealth tip – God is the provider and overseer of our finances; He will provide what we need and more if we are willing to invest it for Him.
