TOPIC: TO SAVE OR INVEST?

Read Luke 19:11-24

MEMORISE: Why then did you not put my money in the bank, that at my coming I might collect it with interest? (Luke 19:23)

EXPOSITION
Profit is a fruit of business. It is the main goal! Even God desires and teaches, as well as empowers His obedient ones to profit; as it is written: ‘Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: “I am the Lord your God, Who teaches you to profit, Who leads you by the way you should go’ (Isa. 48:17; cf. 1 Cor. 12:7).
It is also a commandment by the Lord Jesus Christ to His own, as found in today’s devotional reading, even in both natural and spiritual spheres, or business of living and ministry (Jn. 15:1-8). No room for lousiness! As it is again written, ‘And he called his servants, and said unto them, occupy (or do business) till I come’ (v. 13). Deuteronomy 8:18 says: ‘You shall remember the Lord your God; for it is he that gives you power to get wealth’ (or make abundant profit).
To get this result, however, we need to invest what we have. Of course, ‘unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it produces much grain’ (Jn. 12:24). We must not hide or just save our money or talents, as one of the disciples aptly exemplified in the Parable of Jesus under review. Not all savings yield profit (vv. 20-23). This calls for an understanding of how to save, and where to save. Not all grounds are fertile. We need God’s grace and directives to identify fertile grounds to sow in, for wonderful profits.
Every bit of Creation: animate or inanimate, visible and invisible, flora and fauna are God’s intentional investment. He also taught His disciples to use and invest what they have (Matt. 15:33,34ff). It is what we invest that brings profit. Use what you have! Invest your earthly possessions, talents and gifts! Make profit for both yourself and God’s kingdom.
