Making Disciples of Christ in Ecuador

Are you as wise as this homeless bank robber? A modern parable.

  • Published in Blog

 

In an unmentioned time and place, a man robbed a bank. To back up a bit this man was homeless. All he owned could fit in his backpack. The unfortunate thing is that he used to have a good job and house but due to gambling and an uncontrollable desire for women, he lost everything: his job, his house, and his wife. So eventually he found himself on the street.

Complicated or simple?

  • Published in Blog

 

Your body has a lot of parts. And some of them are vital. Without your vital organs functioning, you won't live. How many vital organs are there? After looking around online it seems there is some disagreement as to how many there are but everyone agrees there is more than one. Life is complicated. There isn't just one organ that has to function and you can live, but several of them have to be working or you won't make it. The majority of your vital organs functioning isn't enough.

Will you go without knowing?

Wandering aimlessly isn't the same as going forward yet not knowing exactly where you are going.  To wander aimlessly means you have no point nor purpose and you're just being carried about by whatever random feeling or thought comes your way.  But to go out and not know exactly where you are going or how you're going to get there is different.  When we go out, following the Lord's call, we have purpose and aim, namely to please and obey Him, but we just don't have all the details.  

This morning I read My Utmost for His Highest and the below was the devotional for today.  There are some good thoughts here that encouraged me quite a bit and I pray that it is helpful for you as you seek to follow Him.

 ‘'The kingdom of heaven is as when a man, going into another country, called his own servants, and delivered them his goods. And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, to another one; to each according to his several ability.’'—Matt. 25:14

 

In the parable of the talents we have a most instructive summary of our Lord’s teaching in regard to the work He has given to His servants to do. He tells us of His going to heaven and leaving His work on earth to the care of His Church; of His giving every one something to do, however different the gifts might be; of His expecting to get back His money with interest; of the failure of him who had received least; and of what it was that led to that terrible neglect.
