04/08/19 – Luke 12:35-59; Psalm 78:56-64; Proverbs 12:24

As I read our passage from Luke I was taken by a specific question Peter asked:

Luke 12:41 Peter asked, “Lord, are you telling this parable to us, or to everyone?

And in Luke we do not see a specific answer but rather Jesus answered —

Luke 12:42 The Lord answered, “Who then is the faithful and wise manager, whom the master puts in charge of his servants to give them their food allowance at the proper time?

Coffman writes on Verse 42  “And the Lord said, Who then is the faithful and wise steward, whom his lord shall set over his household, to give them their portion of food in due season?”

By the use of the word “steward,” Jesus includes all who undertake to do the Savior’s will and do service at his bidding. “The obvious meaning is that Peter and the other apostles, and all who serve the Lord faithfully, are such `faithful and wise stewards’.

The everlasting message is simple: we must be prepared for the Lord’s return!
