When God created everything – He gave man dominion – the responsibility to rule the earth. Everything still belonged to God, but man was supposed to manage it. We were unfaithful in our task. Because of sin, unfaithfulness increased in the earth and is still increasing. All the problems we are experiencing in the world are because of unfaithfulness.
We can change that. We can start being faithful in small things. Recognizing that all we have – our ministries, our families, our businesses, our lives – belong to God – we are called to faithfully manage these things.
Jesus reinstated our authority through His death and resurrection. But we still have to manage faithfully.
It’s our choice – will we be faithful or dishonest?
“One who is faithful in a very little is also faithful in much, and one who is dishonest in a very little is also dishonest in much.” Luke 16:10
