I Cor. 4:2 Now, a person who is put in charge as a manager must be faithful.
Are you a faithful servant? No matter what or who the Lord has put you in charge of, are you faithfully serving Him? In all you do, are you representing Christ well?
We cannot take a vacation from our responsibilities as ambassadors for Christ. There is no part of our lives in which we can't faithfully serve the Lord. In fact, if we are not faithful servants of Christ all the time, we are not living right with God. His presence influences every part of our lives every day.
The command is clear, faithfulness is required of all. We are to manage our homes and businesses in a God-honoring and glorifying way. Being a manager is often a very difficult and stressful role to play. People don't always cooperate and some are downright defiant. Some people will go out of their way to challenge a manager's authority. Some think they know better than the boss does and will do all they can do to prove it.
A good manager doesn't abandon the ship when the going gets rough. He knows the bigger picture and how to get there. He stays the course on that which is right. He doesn't cave in to the pressure of those who would resist him. He remains faithful to the task given him to do.
The Lord has placed certain people in your life to manage well. He wants you to stand strong on that which is true and not bend to the pressure of abandoning ship. The Lord has placed His confidence and trust in you to do your job and serve Him well.
Are you a faithful servant?
