Blessed Is The Servant
APRIL 19, 2022
Daily Reading – Judges 10-11 / Luke 12:36-59
WHAT GOD HAS SAID:
Luke 12:42-43 And the Lord said, Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his lord shall make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of meat in due season? Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.
WHAT I HAVE SEEN:
What is today’s passage in Luke 12 all about? Some look at it with fear of the outcome if they do not perform just right. Some read it and think it is about punishment toward slackers. While others read over it thinking, it does not apply to them at all. I read it maybe just a bit different. I am hung up on, “Blessed is that Servant.”
I really am not concerned about not being prepared. I settled that when I asked Jesus into my heart. I am not even worried about not being rewarded. I am just thrilled I am in the story. “Blessed be the Servant.” It is my absolute privilege to serve the God of all the universe, and now He says to me I am to be blessed. I am not trying to be a wise guy, but I am already blessed.
