“Who then is the faithful and wise slave, whom his master has put in charge of his household, to give the other slaves their allowance of food at the proper time? Blessed is that slave whom his master will find at work when he arrives. Truly I tell you, he will put that one in charge of all his possessions. But if that wicked slave says to himself, ‘My master is delayed,’ and he begins to beat his fellow slaves, and eats and drinks with drunkards, the master of that slave will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour that he does not know. He will cut him in pieces and put him with the hypocrites, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. (Matthew 24:45-51, NRSV)
How will Jesus find us when He returns?
Will He find faithful servants dutifully doing the work Jesus set before us?
Or will He find us distracted by our own desires and gratifying the flesh?
We are the hands and feet of Christ, the Body of our Lord here and now. What are we doing to help other see Him and His love?
