Management of Purpose (1)
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?
43 It will be good for that servant whom the master finds doing so when he returns. 44 Truly I tell you, he will put him in charge of all his possessions.
45 But suppose the servant says to himself, ‘My master is taking a long time in coming,’ and he then begins to beat the other servants, both men and women, and to eat and drink and get drunk.
46 The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the unbelievers.
47 “The servant who knows the master’s will and does not get ready or does not do what the master wants will be beaten with many blows.
48 But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.

You don’t know how to live unless you know it from the mind of the Father.
In life, you don’t own anything, but you have everything as a resource for which you will give account.
You are a manager of resources and the commonwealth, one who distributes resources and will be held accountable for how they are used.
The mindset of God’s Faithful Steward of Purpose & Resources:
You are a manager. You are an ‘employee’ of God.
You are a treasurer. You are in charge of God’s treasury. The treasure is not yours.
You are in Christian Ministry, A preacher of life.
There is a reward in God for you as you wait on Him
Set your focus on delivering your assignment and helping others on your path to perform optimally.
Refuse to be distracted by worldly pleasures and compromises. Don’t be careless. Don’t trade off your Christ conviction. Guard against self-indulgence
Seek out the will of the master and do it.
Walk in awe of God’s given graces.
All that the Lord requires of you shall be delivered.
Time is a resource to be administered. Don’t waste it!
Leadership starts from the self. As you manage yourself, then you will be able to lead others. Lead your finance, relationships, time, and life.
Your assignment and purpose are not small. It is unique and important.
Everything God has given you is scaled through management.
Whatever you don’t manage properly you will lose. Be it money, opportunities, relationships, health, etc.
The fall of man was a failure of management. Prosperity comes from the right management.
Father, make me a great administrator of my day. Help me to redeem the time.
Father grant me the spirit of wisdom to lead myself and lead others. Help me to lead myself in all areas of life.
Father, grant me the spirit of counsel. Make me a Wiseman that my advice will be accurate and impactful. Make me a prudent manager of people, money, time, and life.
Father, equip me for my stewardship and management. Give me all the insights, resources, relationships, and help I need to fulfill my purpose and assignment.
Father, help me to be faithful to what you have given me and not to lose it.
Lord Jesus deliver me from the evil of my day. Help me not to waste my youth and my days. Help me to invest it correctly.
