Luke 16:12

Qualification for Managing a Large Account of Gods Resources

Transcript

Luke 16:12 and if you have not been faithful in the use of that which is another’s who will give you that which is your own what are the qualifications for managing a large account of God’s resources what we see here is that if you want to manage your own resources first you learn how to manage God’s resources if you want to manage something that’s your own first learn to manage something that doesn’t belong to you I began thinking about this this is very interesting suppose a multi trillion dollar owner of a huge trust fund came to town and he wanted to qualify people in your city to manage a large account of his resources he was looking for 10 people that he wanted to pass a million dollars a month through into Christian work into the Kingdom of God how would he chose those people well before he would release a million dollars a month maybe he’d just pick 100 people and give each of them 1000 dollars a month and see what they would do he would say use this in agreement with me and let’s see who’s faithful because if I were that multi trillion dollar trust fund owner I would be looking for people who can manage a small account of my resources before I’m going to release to them a large account of my resources so here’s the principle if you want to manage a large account of somebody’s resources how do you do that first qualify yourself by managing a small account of their resources I believe God does exactly like that He’s looking for people that understand 2 things about His money number 1 that it’s not theirs, it’s His and number 2 that it’s dedicated money set aside, special money what do I mean by that for example if you’re an escrow agent here in the United States and you’re going to manage money for the closing of a house can you put that money in your own personal account suppose somebody gives me 10,000 dollars that I’m going to keep in escrow until the house closing then I release it to the seller of the house the buyer gives me the money can I put that in my own personal account no of course not why? it’s not my money and it’s dedicated money it has to be kept in a separate account if I were a trust fund manager and I said look I want you to manage my money but you can’t put it in your account you can’t spend it on your expenses because if you do you disqualify yourself now suppose somebody is my manager or they’re a person I’m giving a qualification test to I give them 1000 dollars hoping to qualify them for a million dollars a month and they squander my money but suppose it’s one of my own sons do I love that son less? no, I’m going to love him the same I’m going to provide for him the same but am I going to give him more of my money am I going to qualify him to manage the million when he doesn’t manage the 1000 the answer is of course not I believe God does exactly the same with us what is the small amount of God’s money that doesn’t belong to us but belongs to Him that He allows us to manage it’s a qualification test for managing a large amount of His money and having money released to us personally it’s called the Lord’s tithe I believe the tithe is a very simple thing it’s just 10% of what comes to us and it doesn’t belong to us it belongs to God it’s a qualification test to determine exactly what Yeshua said here if we know how to manage that which belongs to another if you can learn how to manage what belongs to God God releases to you that which is your own everybody has an opportunity to learn how to manage a small account of money that doesn’t belong to them it’s God’s money it’s called the LORD’S tithe what do you do with it you simply week by week by week deliver it to the storehouse where is the storehouse that’s the local congregation where you’re fed where you’re covered where you’re blessed and some people say well I don’t go to a local church or I’m not part of exactly that well the point is the storehouse is the place where you’re fed where you receive the word of God where you’re covered where people love you pray for you where you receive impartation bring it to that place that’s the storehouse that is money that doesn’t belong to you when you manage it appropriately Yeshua said that’s what qualifies you to manage that which is your own and I believe this when you manage the small account of God’s resources called the LORD’S tithe appropriately and faithfully 100% God releases to you huge amounts of His resource to flow through you into His Kingdom so if you were wanting to qualify yourself to manage a large account of God’s resources and to increase what God gives you stewardship and administrative responsibility over and especially in terms of resources manage the small account called the LORD’S tithe appropriately Father I pray for each one of us today that you would open our eyes to exactly what does this mean that if I haven’t learned to manage that which belongs to another how could I ever expect to have that which is my own Father show us how to manage that which belongs to you first I pray that you would speak to each one of us that we would be faithful administrators and managers over that which belongs to you first in the name of Yeshua Amen
