A Daily Devotion for Thursday, June 30.


Luke 12:42-46


The Lord answered, “Who then is the faithful and wise manager, whom the master puts in charge of his servants to give them their food allowance at the proper time? It will be good for that servant whom the master finds doing so when he returns. Truly I tell you, he will put him in charge of all his possessions. But suppose the servant says to himself, ‘My master is taking a long time in coming,’ and he then begins to beat the other servants, both men and women, and to eat and drink and get drunk. The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the unbelievers.”


I am sure this parable has many layers of meaning. For me today, I am struck with the reality that God put us “in charge” of His creation. We are to live in it, take care of it, respect it. It really does not belong to any one of us, but we are certainly all in charge of taking care of it. And God is aware of how we manage this responsibility. He sees the choices we make. In my own small way, I owe it to God to take care of His creation. He is never “away” and sees every choice I make.

Holy One, maker of heaven and earth, I am so thankful to be among those you trusted to dwell here. May I be ever mindful of the fact I am merely a guest on this planet, and need to respect and take care of it as I am able. Amen

Luke 12:42–46.  stewardship As I read these verses with the word stewardship in mind, I see our responsibility to this planet earth. Native Americans knew well that “mother Earth” was vital to their well-being. Well, it still is and we are not all doing the best job of preserving it. We should all be trying our best in anyway we can to try to take care of our environment. Recycling, saving on water, and repurposing items are only a few of the easy ways to help. Stewardship is not always easy but the reward of good stewardship is great. Prayer: gracious God may I find new ways to be a good steward of this wonderful gift you have given us. Amen

Luke 12:42-46


I think these verses address something that I have questioned. Does the person who accepts God on his deathbed get treated the same as someone who works at following God’s teaching for a lifetime? Jesus is telling me here that I should be ready for His coming every minute.


Dear Lord, whichever lifestyle is valued more by you, I will continue on the path that I have tried to follow because it the only one that I know. Thank you for the life that I have had and continue to have. Amen.

Luke 12:42-46

And the Lord said, “Who then is the faithful and wise manager, whom his master will set over his household, to give them their portion of food at the proper time? Blessed is that servant whom his master will find so doing when he comes. Truly, I say to you, he will set him over all his possessions. But if that servant says to himself, ‘My master is delayed in coming,’ and begins to beat the male and female servants, and to eat and drink and get drunk, the master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he does not know, and will cut…

Luke 12:42-46 Jesus pulled no punches in His telling of parables. He makes very plain the notion that good and faithful stewardship will be rewarded but poor, reckless stewardship is tantamount to unbelief. Why should God accept our prayers, hymns and professions of faith on Sunday if we abuse His creation and our fellow creatures the rest of the week. Genuine Christianity is more a way of life than it is a religion.


Prayer - Generous God, keep my heart and mind focused on lovingly caring for Your incomparable gift of creation and for those with whom I share it. Amen
