Devotional Guide – Treasure the Master (Matthew 25:14-30)

PDF – Devotional Guide – Treasure the Master

Monday: What do you believe has been the most exhilarating moment of your life? Think for a moment about your future and the ultimate exhilarating moment for a follower of Jesus. Ask the Lord to give you a renewed longing to hear these words from his lips concerning you: “Well done, good and faithful servant…Enter into the joy of your master!” (Verses 21, 23) What do you think the joy of the Master is that we enter?
Tuesday: In v.27. the master calls it “my money”. We are entrusted with resources that belong to our heavenly Master.  None of them belong to us! How would we live differently if we really believed this?
Wednesday: If we are called to invest our Master’s resources in causes that He values, what are some of those causes and how are you doing? Matthew 6:1-4, 25:35-36; Luke 10:25; Acts 4:32; I Corinthians 16:2.
Thursday: How does this small phrase of Jesus help us deal with our constant tendency to compare ourselves with others and either feel superior or inferior? “…to each according to his ability” (v. 15).
Friday:  The chief fault of the third servant was that he did not rightly assess His master’s heart and character and opted for safety instead of service. Treasuring the talents (the gifts, abilities, opportunities, and resources) entrusted to you by the Lord means taking a risk to use them. Read about a couple of Christ-intoxicated risk takers. Acts 15:25-27; Philippians 2:25-30, Romans 16:3-5. How is God calling you to use His talents now?
Saturday: Jesus is the Master who became a bond-servant who thought not of His divine rights and prerogatives, but only of you. He became obedient to death in order to save people like us who too often insist on our rights and waste His gifts (Philippians 2:8).
