When Your Boss is Away! (i365 Day 291)

Every Sunday, thousands of domestic workers gather in many parts of Hong Kong. It’s their official day off, they are entitled to rest and socialise with their countrywomen, but on their working days, their employers expect them to work hard. Owing to the social structure of this city, the demand for domestic workers is great. Some fortunate employers are pretty satisfied with the performance of their domestic workers, but some not so fortunate bosses have found their maids lazy and unreliable. Before their bosses, certain domestic workers seem to be working very hard, but when their employers are away, they would goof off right away. Ideally, all workers should be faithful to their employers!
Jesus speaks of many parables and one of them is about stewardship. By means of this parable, He encourages His followers to remain faithful to Him and ready for His return (Luke 12:35–48). A good reminder to all Christians!
Let’s ponder the words of Jesus Christ.
Ponder: 40You also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.” (Luke 12:40 ESV)
Post: Let’s post a question to God. “Dear Jesus Christ, could you help me to remain faithful to You and ready for Your return?”
Practice: Let’s practice what you learnt. Pray that you will remain faithful to Jesus Christ and ready for His return.
Proclaim: Let’s proclaim to others about your experiential knowledge. Share your wish with a fellow believer as a way of encouraging one another.
