Morning Manna by Rufus Parker - 2016 August 9

His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord. (Matthew 25:21)

Today’s Morsel:  I’ve come to realize the reason that many who say that they are Christians do not have joy is because they are not faithful. They are not faithful with what God has given them.  They have talents but they are not faithful with them.  Every one of us knows what we are good at and how it can be used to help the church or others.  But because we don’t see the value of it, we don’t use it.  Since my daughter was a young teenager, she learned to cook and enjoys it.  And she uses that talent of cooking all the time.  Whether it’s cooking a meal for her pastor, baking cookies and cupcakes for her children’s class and teachers, or cooking a meal for others, she uses her talent.   This may seem a small thing to her, yet I believe that one day she is going to hear Jesus say to her, "Well done thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord."  Are you faithful with your talent?   If not, why not start using it for the kingdom and see what Jesus will do for you.  To be ruler of many things requires faithfulness in the small things first.

Sing: The joy of the Lord is my strength, the joy of the Lord is my strength, the joy of the Lord is my strength, the joy of the Lord is my strength.

Thought For Today: To be ruler of many things requires faithfulness in the small things.
