Jesus Explained the Steward Parable
Christ talked about responsibility.
The faithful souls and the ignorant would
Be judged differently from the lazy,
The calculating, the noncompliant.
Duties of life can lead to holiness.
The Spirit of God leads to sanctity.
Let’s worship God in spirit and in truth.
Jesus was poor, humble, and cross-bearing.
Everyone has different chores and gifts.
Charity arouses hope and good works.
Let’s act with courage and humility.
Jesus Christ washed the feet of His apostles.
My grandfather overslept and missed the
Eastland. Sometimes it’s okay to be late.
