A Truth to Live – Jesus, the King of Heaven measures true productivity. The Gospels tell numerous parables about workers being rewarded for their faithfulness and resourcefulness – and others being punished for their laziness. Every follower of Jesus may receive both a present tense and future reward for speaking the words of the Kingdom and bringing life to all who hear.
Scripture – “Then the King will say to those on His right, ‘Come you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the Kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world’.” Matthew 25:34
Prayer – Heavenly Father, I come humbly to You today, acknowledging my own shortcomings and ask for You to grant me the strength and courage to speak Your words of life to others and to do Your will. I know that You have prepared an inheritance for those who follow You. Help me to follow You and You alone. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
