Mission Impossible coverFaithful Stewardship by Tim Tebow

If the willingness is present, it is acceptable according to what a person has, not according to what he does not have. 

—2 Corinthians 8:12

Remember that parable Jesus told about three servants in Matthew 25? The first was given ten talents to manage, the second, five talents, and the third, one talent. Each servant was given exactly what he could handle. When their master asked to see what became of their original portions, the first two servants reportedly doubled the investment. However, the third, though he had the smallest portion and therefore the least risk, only hid his share, in the name of keeping it safe. His master, angry with the servant, declared him unfaithful with his portion. 

What has God given you to work with? It may be tempting to look at what others have and neglect to care for what He has given you to manage, especially if it seems that others have more. Excellence is being and doing your personal best. It’s working with what you have, as the servants were required to do. We are all in different situations in life. We have different limitations and are expected to work within them. The goal is not to do everything perfectly but to give of what we have. 

If you have time, give it. If you have a talent, offer it. If all you can do is offer genuine prayers, then offer those. Don’t look around you to the other people. God works through our obedience, not our abundance. 

How can you be a faithful steward of whatever you have today?
