EDITORIAL: Investing in His Kingdom

Editor of awmlink

Jesus tells us a parable of a master who entrusted different amounts to his servants. The two who proved diligent were honoured for being faithful.

You don’t make spending decisions, investment decisions or hiring decisions, when you don’t know what’s going to happen.
Michael Bloomberg, US billionaire and philanthropist

Mr Bloomberg reached number 8 in Forbe’s 2016 list of the world’s billionaires. He also announced a few years ago his ambition to give away all his fortune before passing away.

This may prove trickier than it first sounds. He’s in his seventies and has an estimated value of $40 billion to his name. Still, not a bad problem to have, is it?

Faithful with the Master’s resources

His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’ Matthew 25:23 (NIV)

In Matthew 25, Jesus tells a memorable parable about a very rich man. Like Mr Bloomberg, he had no interest in squandering his wealth. The master entrusted different amounts to his servants and highly honoured the two who proved diligent.

Our latest awmlink magazine includes articles on how people can be diligent in His Kingdom mission, such as:

– mentoring others in cross-cultural ministry
– giving regularly to gospel ministry
– learning Arabic to reach the unreached.
