Bible Verse for Today
“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” (1 Peter 4:10)
That is the most reason why God gave us the treasure at first. He gave us so that we can use it to serve him and serve people around in the right way – this is the work we are called to do. He works too, he created the heaven and the earth so we, created in his image must work. Adam was given a work from the start, he used the treasure which is wisdom that the Lord has given him to name all the creatures God created. Right from the beginning he created man, he has given us works to do and it seems to be in form of blessing. Right from the beginning, he ordered us to start working.
You might be wondering how that is supposed to be a work. Let’s consider a little garden we have at our backyard, you have to weed it to avoid it turning to a forest and if you have no garden, the house you live in, you take care of it daily and that is a work. What you use to clean them up will be important to you so you will keep them and value them. In the process of doing the works we are called to, we build our faith in God. When our faith is strong then, God himself would be pleased with us. (Hebrews 11:6) Through having faith we then have life in Christ, a life eternal. (John 3:15)
