In Psalms 8:6 to 8, the Bible said that,”God has made us rulers and managers over His creation. But what really is a manager? Is he to act like he is the boss of a company?
Does the manager have the right to throw his anger and start shouting at his subordinate? Or does he have a share of the company? The Webster’s dictionary defines the manager as ”one who manages the affairs or expenditures as of a household or client.” Some uses the word “steward”. It is the highest authority position after the owner.
When we received Christ as our personal Lord and Saviour, He not only gave us eternal life. He also made us to be His managers! We need to acknowledge that God owns it all and we need to give to Him all of our thoughts and tangible possessions, our money, time, talent and even our future. We have to testify that God indeed is the Lord of our lives through our actions. It is crucial if we want to experience the grace of God in our lives.
The Bible exhorts us to be faithful.” He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much, and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much.If therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous manmmon, who will commit to your trust the true riches” Luke 16:10-11 (KJV). How do you know whether a person can be trusted or not? By observing his action, his attitude in managing the little things given to him. It is easy for us to be careless. Have you been faithful with what belongs to others?
Money is an important part of our lives. The way we manages it reflects who we really are. Let us be faithful with the money and be a good manager of the resources God has entrusted to us.
