Monday was only a precursor

This is going to be an extremely long week. I attended two meetings in church today from 8:00pm to 11:00pm. I was thoroughly exhausted by then and what more I had to wake up at 6:30am the next morning, as I do every school day.

During the 2nd meeting, which was chaired by the District Superintendent, he gave a timely reminder about our work in the Lord.

Matthew 24:45-51
45 "Who then is the faithful and sensible slave whom his master put in charge of his household to give them their food at the proper time? 46 "Blessed is that slave whom his master finds so doing when he comes. 47 "Truly I say to you that he will put him in charge of all his possessions. 48 "But if that evil slave says in his heart, 'My master is not coming for a long time,' 49 and begins to beat his fellow slaves and eat and drink with drunkards; 50 the master of that slave will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour which he does not know, 51 and will cut him in pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites; in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

There are 3 points in this passage, he said:
(1) God has called us to faithfulness and wisdom (v.45)
(2) God will encourage and motivate us (v.47)
(3) However, there is a warning (v.48-51)

I pray that I will be his faithful servant, and put on wisdom from the Lord, not the wisdom of the world.
