40 Days of Service Day 9

Morning Prayer: Lord, how can I serve you today?

Scripture: Matthew 25:14-30

We will all be judged based upon what kind of servant we were. Were we good and faithful or were we wicked and lazy? All of us want to hear our Lord Jesus say to us, “Well done, good and faithful servant!” These words will require us to be faithful to what our Lord has entrusted us with.

Psalm 24 tells us, “The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it;” God owns everything and He has entrusted all of us with something. He has entrusted us with money. Are we being good stewards? He has entrusted us with kids and grandkids. Are we leading them in the way of the Lord? He has entrusted us with friends and family. Our friends and our family are the people we have the most influence with. Have we been a good witness? He has entrusted us with talents. Are we using them to glorify God? He has entrusted the youth with strength and energy. He has entrusted the aged with wisdom and knowledge. Are we using them to serve God?

Every time we miss an opportunity to be faithful with what God has entrusted us with is another scoop of dirt we use to bury our talents.
