Daily Word Of God

Luke 16:10-15

Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Anyone who is trustworthy in little things is trustworthy in great; anyone who is dishonest in little things is dishonest in great. If then you are not trustworthy with money, that tainted thing, who will trust you with genuine riches? And if you are not trustworthy with what is not yours, who will give you what is your very own?

‘No servant can be the slave of two masters: he will either hate the first and love the second, or be attached to the first and despise the second. You cannot be the slave both of God and of money.

The Pharisees, who loved money, heard all this and jeered at him. He said to them, ‘You are the very ones who pass yourselves off as upright in people’s sight, but God knows your hearts. For what is highly esteemed in human eyes is loathsome in the sight of God.’

Today's Pointers on God's Word

As you read the passage what words, phases or meanings caught your attention?

  • We are well versed with the ways of the world and know how to become successful and make a name for ourselves, to ensure that we have the “best” things in life.


  • If we apply the same tenacity, perseverance and sacrifice in our spiritual life, our rewards will even be greater because the rewards are more than temporal; they are eternal.


  • Is it due to ignorance or are we distracted by the “voices” of the world so much that we are not able to focus our living on gaining eternal life?  Beg God for the wisdom to live and gain the eternal treasure that He wants to give us.
