TEXT:LUKE 16:1-18

KEY VERSE: "If therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches?" (LUKE 16:11).

The following quotation was attributed to an unknown source. "Character is the one thing we make in this world and take with us into the next. The circumstances amid which you live determine your reputation; the truth you believe determines your character. Reputation is what you are supposed to be; character is what you are.
"Reputation is what you have when you come to a new community; character is what you have when you go away. Reputation is made in a moment; character is built in a lifetime. A single newspaper report gives our reputation; a life of toil gives you your character... Reputation is what men say about you on your tombstone; character is what angels say about you before the throne of God."
Nowadays, people cut corners and take all kinds of shortcuts to succeed in life. Some change figures and cook up books in order to defraud their masters to make themselves an unrighteous gain.
Christ's exhortation was not in any way an endorsement for sharp practices, but an encouragement to make preparation for eternity. Ministers of God are stewards of the mysteries of God. They are expected to be models of righteousness to other members of the church. Believers are to exhibit the true virtues of Christianity in their workplace. This is what differentiates us from others in the world.
No matter what choices we make in life and the motive behind our actions, the truth will come out eventually. Nothing is hidden under the sun. The service we deliver today in faithfulness while working for others, will eventually be repaid when others begin to work for us.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Do your work with the highest level of integrity.

THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: ESTHER 1-5
