Be a Faithful Steward - Trust and Obey

Updated: Apr 30, 2023

Earlier this week, my younger son Jakin was screaming at 6am on the 3rd floor as we were getting ready to head out for school. I came to find out he was screaming because he touched a dead bumblebee lying on the floor, thinking that it was a toy.

As we walked to the bus stop, I said to him “Jakin, it is fine to be curious but you have to be careful while exploring things.”

This short conversation reminds me that God has given spiritual gifts to His children freely according to His will. We need to explore the gifts we have by trying out different roles of services in the church ministries. No matter the stage of life we are in, God will always be willing to use us as instruments to His works as long as we are willing to trust and obey. In the Bible, it says "Whoever has will be given more, and they will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them." (Matthew 13:12) The same Bible tells us "Now it is required that those who have been given a trust must prove faithful" (1 Corinthians 4:2) It is pertinent that we explore the spiritual gifts entrusted to us by God and we learn to be good stewards of these gifts to put them to good use. In recent days when my serving has faced challenges, I look to the lives of the missionaries God used and how they were instrumental to the works of God's Kingdom. I love the famous quote of William Carey that says, "Expect great things from God. Attempt great things for God." Though William Carey was an ordinary person, he saw his potential in God. It was not because he knew he possessed unique skillsets but because he knew God is limitless and almighty. Carey knew that he was very limited but as an instrument in the hands of God, he knew he could attempt great things for God.
