Mind Your Own Business – devotional – day 3

Day 3
Your role is to be the trustee, manager and steward of 100% of what God entrusts to you during your lifetime.
Think about, discuss or pray about the verse that relates most to your life:
Colossians 3:17, 23-24 “Whatever you do or say, let it be as a
representative of the Lord Jesus….Work hard and cheerfully at whatever
you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people.
Remember that the Lord will give you an inheritance as your reward,
and the Master you are serving is Christ.” NLT
Romans 14:7-8 “None of us lives to himself alone and none of us dies
to himself alone. If we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die
to the Lord.”
Matthew 25:19-21, 24-26 “After a long time their master returned
from his trip and called them to give an account of how they had used
his money. The servant to whom he had entrusted the five bags of gold
said, `Sir, you gave me five bags of gold to invest, and I have doubled the
amount.’ The master was full of praise. `Well done, my good and faithful
servant. You have been faithful in handling this small amount, so now
I will give you many more responsibilities. Let’s celebrate together!’…
“Then the servant with the one bag of gold came and said, `Sir, I know you
are a hard man, harvesting crops you didn’t plant and gathering crops you
didn’t cultivate. I was afraid I would lose your money, so I hid it in the earth
and here it is.’ “But the master replied, `You wicked and lazy servant!” NLT
1 Corinthians 4:2 “It is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.” KJV
Martin Luther said,

“People go through 3 conversions: The conversion of their head, their heart and their pocketbook.  Unfortunately, not all at the same time.”

Have you gone through all 3 conversions yet?
