Good Steward Ka Ba?
Bilang mabubuting katiwala ng iba’t ibang kaloob ng Diyos, gamitin ninyo ang kakayahang tinanggap ninyo sa ikakapakinabang ng lahat.
1 Pedro 4:10
Magluto, mag-asikaso ang pamilya, pumasok sa trabaho, at turuan ang mga bata sa assignments. Ilan lang ang mga ito sa major tasks mo for the day. Kaya pa ba ng time at energy mo na maisingit ang exercise sa daily routine? Kapag nakausap mo ang mga mahihilig mag-jogging, malalaman mong karamihan sa kanila, maayos ang time management dahil mas may energy pa nga sila to finish their to-do list. Parang namumultiply ang lakas at oras nila.
What God has given us in this life can be compared to this scenario. Lahat ng ipinagkaloob Niya, mas lumalago the more na ginagamit natin ito. This pertains to our gifts, abilities, and experiences.
The Bible tells us that we should be faithful stewards in various forms (see 1 Peter 4:10). But what does “steward” mean? It is one who actively directs affairs or, in short, manager. As managers, we are responsible sa mga ipinagkatiwala sa atin ng totoong may-ari — si God. And He expects a return of investment sa lahat ng meron tayo just like the master He spoke about in the Parable of the Talents (Matthew 25:14-30).
Are you a student? Pwede mong i-share ang gift of wisdom mo sa classmate mo who needs tutoring. Magaling ka sa time management? After completing your task, offer to help others with theirs. If you’ve been a mom for many years, you can share your experiences with new mothers para maka-cope sila sa demands ng bagong season ng buhay nila.
You will soon realize that the more you share, the more you grow. And the more you grow, the larger number of people you could bless. And this, ultimately, will please God!
Dear Lord, You have blessed me not just for my own benefit, but to be a blessing to others. I surrender my heart to You. Remind me always that in whatever I have, I should be a good steward and a faithful servant to You.
