Are you a wise manager?

by PASTOR DAVE FERNLUND
Algoma Baptist Church

In Luke 19, Jesus tells a parable of a man of noble birth who was leaving on a trip. Before he left, he called his servants together and gave them each some money to put to work in his absence.

When he returned he asked them what they had done with his money. He wanted to know what they had gained with it. Those who multiplied the money were rewarded. One servant who had done nothing with what he was given had it taken away from him.

Each of these men were called on by his master to be a wise manager of his money.

How wise are we in handling the finances that our master has give to us? God has given to us the money that we have. He has entrusted it to us for this lifetime, and he expects us to invest it wisely for his purposes. In fact, the Bible says he will bless us if we do this.

Will we invest our money wisely? Will we demonstrate contentment in the way we use credit? Will we live according to our wage? Will we focus on our needs and not the limits of how much we can get? Will we understand that happiness and security come from God and not from money? Are you a wise manager?
