“Blessed is that slave whom his master finds so doing when he comes” (Matthew 24:46).

In the light of verse 45 and its emphasis upon responsibility, it should be noted that the servant blessed upon the Lord’s return isn’t the one found praying, sitting in church, or reading the bible. As vital as these spiritual disciplines are to the life of faith, if they are not being translated into providing spiritual leadership within one’s realm of influence (household), they are an exercise in futility. Therefore, in the anticipation of the Lord’s return, our focus isn’t the clouds in the sky but the opportunities for kingdom engagement where our feet are.
