Commentary from Pastor Michael White:
He also said to His disciples: “There was a certain rich man who had a steward, and an accusation was brought to him that this man was wasting his goods. So he called him and said to him, ‘What is this I hear about you? Give an account of your stewardship, for you can no longer be steward.’” – Lk. 16:1-2
The goods didn’t belong to the steward; they belonged to the rich man. The owner had every right to call the steward to him and ask why he was using his resources the way he was. The owner knew the steward was being wasteful, instead of honoring the owner in the way he managed what he was given.
You are the steward. I am the steward! The “goods” – the good things in our lives – don’t really belong to us; they belong to Jesus! And He has every right to call us to Him and ask for an explanation as to why we are using His resources the way we are.
So, how is your stewardship? Are you managing what God has given you well? Are you spending His money like it’s your own? Are you living with open hands, or with closed fists? I pray you would take advantage of the amazing opportunity you have in front of you to manage God’s money well. Because good stewards receive a great reward.
Father, make me a good steward! I pray You would help me to see everything I have as Yours, and not mine. I don’t own it; You do! Help me to manage Your resources well, in Jesus’ name.
