Immediately after Jesus tells a parable about a manager being shrewd with his wealth, He begins teaching the disciples. It seems Jesus wants to make a point about the faithfulness involved in stewarding wealth. God and wealth cannot be served together, you will choose one and reject the other, so the better option is to serve one with the other! May not your love of money lead you to serve wealth, but may your love for God lead you to use wealth to serve His Kingdom.
Questions for further thought:
1. In what ways are you serving God’s Kingdom?
2. What are some ways that you serve wealth?
3. What are ways that you serve God?
Challenge: Find a way to use your things (money, materials, etc.) to bless someone who needs to hear about God’s love today.
