His lord said to him, “Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’
In Matthew 24-25, Jesus gives several parables to heed as Christians approach the last days. The parable of the talents has one key lesson that all Believers need to heed. What is that lesson? God values and commands us to be faithful to Him. Whether we have little or whether we have much, the principle is still the same—be faithful!
The world’s definition of success is far different than the one found in the Kingdom of God. This world’s interpretation of accomplishment can be summed up in one word, more. This society values more money, more fame, more pleasure, and more everything. The problem, though, is the fact that one can never have enough. Even when one achieves some level of prosperity it never completely fulfills them. There is always a desire for more.
By contrast, the Lord simply asks His people to be faithful. He calls us to be faithful to our Savior, faithful to our family, and faithful to the Kingdom of God. Perseverance equals success in the life of the Christian. As many have said, “let us be faithful to the Lord and trust Him for the results.”
Be faithful, dear Christian. You may not have wild earthly achievements. But, everything you do for Christ will be noted in Heaven. Be faithful!
