Hello This is a Test

Luke 16:10-12
10 “If you are faithful in little things, you will be faithful in large ones. But if you are dishonest in little things, you won’t be honest with greater responsibilities. 11 And if you are untrustworthy about worldly wealth, who will trust you with the true riches of heaven? 12 And if you are not faithful with other people’s things, why should you be trusted with things of your own?


16:11 Unrighteous wealth here refers to earthly money and possessions. True riches means spiritual stewardship and responsibility in God’s kingdom, and ultimately heavenly reward as well (cf. 12:33; 18:22; Matt. 6:19–21, 24).
16:12 Not … faithful in that which is another’s means faithfulness with respect to worldly possessions that God entrusts to his people for their stewardship during their lifetime (cf. 19:11–27). Your own refers back to the “true riches” of 16:11 regarding spiritual responsibility in God’s kingdom and heavenly reward.


  • Jesus tells us that we should learn to be faithful with little so that God can trust us with more. We have all been given time, talents, resources and influence by God. He has entrusted us with those things and expects us to be good stewards of them. If we are, he says he will entrust us with more. But the question is, how trust worthy are you? Are you faithful with everything that has been given to you? In which of the areas mentioned do you see the most waste and lack of intentionality?

  • Many people don't feel like they are smart enough or talented enough to be used by God. Few think God has "called" them to do anything significant for the Kingdom. But the truth is that every single follower of Jesus is called to no longer live for themselves. Instead, they are to live for Christ. There are no qualifiers given as to whether or not someone has enough to offer to be used. You don't have to "feel called" in order to do big things for the Kingdom. Are you one that feels inadequate or insecure when it comes to being used by God? Does this make you slow to be obedient? How could God use you to accomplish great things for his Kingdom? What is keeping you from saying "yes" to him?


  • That you would be faithful with what God has given you.
  • That you would long to be used by God for his glory.

This Week's City 7:

Try to commit to memory! 

3. Why did Jesus have to die on the cross? Since “all have sinned” and the “wages of sin is death,” Jesus had to die on the cross to pay the fine for my sin so I could be right with God.
(Romans 3:23, 5:8, 6:21-23, 2 Corinthians 5:21; Ephesians 2:1-6; Colossians 1:13-14, 21-22)
