FAITHFUL AND FRUITFUL

“Who then is the faithful and wise servant...?” – Matthew 24:45

You have two options in life. First: Enjoy now, endure later. Many, upon receiving salary or bonuses, immediately shop till they drop. They enjoy temporary bounty without the thought of tomorrow. When poverty comes, they endure the consequences as they sing: “I wish that I could turn back the clock….”
Second: Endure now, enjoy later! I want to belong to those who choose the latter. They work hard, save, invest and tithe. Their motto: Live today with tomorrow in mind. When they’re old, they enjoy life and generously help many.
Faithfulness works the same way. What God entrusted to us we must grow. To grow fruits, we must work on the roots.
Motivational speaker Zig Ziglar tells a story about the Chinese bamboo tree. From the time you plant it until its fourth year, it doesn’t show signs of growth. But on the fifth year, it finally sprouts and the tree grows up to 80 feet in just one season! During its “dormant” years, it was developing a root system to enable its long-term growth.
So faithfully sow your time, talent and treasure into the rich soil of God’s will. Endure sacrifices now and enjoy Godly prosperity later! Obet Cabrillas (kpreacherobet@gmail.com)

REFLECTION:
Do you practice delayed gratification?

Lord, may I be that servant whom You find doing Your will when You return.
