Matt. 25, 23

I.

Responsibility is measured by ability and opportunity.  These are our beginnings and test our devotion to any cause.  God never requires more than we are able, under his blessings to perform.

II.

“He delivered to them his goods, to each according to his several ability.  He knew what each one was capable of doing.  We should recognize!

(1)  That we handle another’s property committed to us for a time–a sacred trust.

(2)  We are to handle it for him–according to his pleasure–so as to increase his goods that he may have a return from his investment.

III.

He gives us time to increase the gift before he calls us to render account of our stewardship.

He is anxious that we succeed.  Let no one be careless about his life, nor the way he deports himself.  The day of reckoning will assuredly come.

IV.

“Well done.”  One can see his smile that his servant has been “good and faithful.”  He will pay it if only it is true.

That will be heaven for us.

Let us be encouraged to do our best for him.
