A Faithful Heart and Disciplined Hands

A faithful heart and disciplined hands are essential.

Luke 16:11 says, “If then you have not been faithful in the use of worldly wealth, who will entrust the true riches to you?” God’s Word never calls us to financial success. The Bible emphasizes that we must strive to be financially faithful. You see, success is measured by amounts, by what’s in our hands. Faithfulness is measured by devotion, by who is in our hearts.

In addition, we’re called to be disciplined. 2 Timothy 2:6 says, “It is the hard-working farmer who ought to have the first share of the crops.” No garden can maximize its potential without the daily discipline of the farmer watching over it with skill and knowledge. In the same way, our stewardship of God’s resources will be evaluated by whether our management was both disciplined and faithful. That means we work hard, relying upon wisdom and knowledge to make good financial choices. Putting God and His Kingdom first, allows us to keep our hearts free from serving money. Living this way is how we prepare ourselves to hear: “Well done, thou good and faithful servant! Enter into the joy of your Master.”

But it doesn’t end there. If you’ve been disciplined and faithful, you’ll be given an eternal job of managing God’s cities That blows my mind! It also motivates me to be the best steward I can possibly be. So how about you? Grow in your discipline and faithfulness today so you’ll be prepared to hear “well done”.
