25 September 2023: PURPOSE, RESPONSIBILITY, AND PRODUCTIVITY (1) – Genesis 1:28; Matthew 25:14-30; Luke 15:11-31


God does not support a man who lacks purpose. Such a man is irresponsible and unproductive. God is a purposeful and responsible Father who loves productivity. When He created man in Genesis 1:28, “…God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.” That is the nature of our God.

Jesus hates lack of purpose, irresponsibility, and unproductivity.

The stories of the prodigal son and the unprofitable servant from our texts above show us the Lord’s mindset when it comes to multiplying wealth and resources. Most people don’t know this aspect of Jesus Christ, although they know Him as the Healer. Many people look at Jesus the Saviour but don’t remember to look at Jesus the Manager, who multiplies wealth. The mindset of Jesus in our text is the Jewish mindset. The Jewish mindset hates irresponsibility.

Consider the story of the unprofitable servant who went to bury his talent and returned to the master exactly what he was given. The master was so angry that he commanded the talent be taken from him and given to the other man, who had ten. This is “For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath (Mat. 25:29).” – This is Jesus’ mindset. Nonetheless, this does not sit well with the demon of religion that wants to represent Jesus wrongly to people who tolerate mediocrity.

PRAYER: I receive grace today to be a believer that is responsible and productive in Zion, in Jesus’ name. Amen!

Isaiah 45:11-48:11; Ephesians 4:1-16; Psalm 68:19-35;Proverbs 24:3-4
