COMING CLOSER TO CHRIST:
You cannot serve two masters. In what ways do you use your earthly gifts (intellect, personality, wealth, and so on) to show honor and glory to the Lord? Or are we the only one we are serving?
The Industrious Servant found a way to save face with his master and clientele, when his ‘job security’ was placed in jeopardy. We all have excuses why our lives are so busy we cannot take on ministries; but what if the eternal salvation of a soul entrusted to you depended on your industriousness? Would your priorities be the same? Love surmounts all obstacles and excuse. The issues is not the lack of time we have, but the measure of love we are willing to commit to God and neighbour.
