Slaves

20130814-145402.jpgPeter said, “Lord, are you telling this parable for us or for everyone?” And the Lord said, “Who then is the faithful and prudent manager whom his master will put in charge of his slaves, to give them their allowance of food at the proper time? Blessed is that slave whom his master will find at work when he arrives. Truly I tell you, he will put that one in charge of all his possessions. But if that slave says to himself, ‘My master is delayed in coming,’ and if he begins to beat the other slaves, men and women, and to eat and drink and get drunk, the master of that slave will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour that he does not know, and will cut him in pieces, and put him with the unfaithful. That slave who knew what his master wanted, but did not prepare himself or do what was wanted, will receive a severe beating. But the one who did not know and did what deserved a beating will receive a light beating. From everyone to whom much has been given, much will be required; and from the one to whom much has been entrusted, even more will be demanded. (Luke 12:41-48, NRSV)

What will Jesus find you doing when He returns?

Are you building His kingdom and doing His work? Or are you making rules and forcing people to live in the fashion you think they should so that your rules are followed?

Jesus was not one to keep the rules when the ultimate issue of one of God’s children was in need.

So what will Jesus find you doing? Will you be building up His people and using the gifts He gave you in mercy, grace, and love towards others? Or will He find you judging those around you by how they act or act wrongly around the rules you have setup. The only rule God uses for you is grace and love. And He has the right and authority to judge, we can only judge if we allow ourselves to be judged by the same judgement.

So what slave are you?
