Loyalty

November 25, 2012

In our everyday jobs, we have managers and workers. The managers will only be successful through dedicated workers. Christ has called us to come into the vineyard to labor. He did not call us to sit and waste time.
As managers and workers, how are we spending our time? Are we being productive, sowing seeds or gathering fruits? If we are responsible to oversee the entire vineyard, it is our responsibilities to be productive by being at work every day, on time and follow up on the tasks at hand.
While we are negligent in our duties, arriving at work late, we allow weeds to grow and choke the crops. Therefore, we allow the business to become bankrupt because we are not producing fruit. If we owned a business, would we be late every day, not concerned with sales or keep track of the inventory? If we do not work at our business, we would be forced into bankruptcy.
Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few (Matt. 9:37).
Now he who received seed among the thorns is he, who hears the word, and the cares of this world and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word, and he becomes unfruitful. But he who received seed on the good ground is he who hears the word and understands it, who indeed bears fruit and produces: some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty” (Matt. 13:22-23).
“And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, so that he will not destroy the fruit of your ground, nor shall the vine fail to bear fruit for you in the field” says the Lord of hosts (Malachi 3:11)
Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life (Revelation 2:10).
Do not become sluggish, but imitate those who through faith and patience inherit the promises (Hebrews 6:12).
Since we have been appointed overseers of Christ vineyard, will you produce fruits or allow the vineyard to go into bankruptcy?
