KEY SCRIPTURE: Luke 16:12 KJV. And if ye have not been faithful in that which is another man’s, who shall give you that which is your own?
Life is always in stages. You grow and have to learn by serving and also taking care of that which belongs to others. It may even belong to your father; it is not yours and you are expected to be faithful. The second part of the opening scripture teaches that if you are not faithful in another man’s work, who would give you your own? True promotion comes from God who is the judge. (Psalm 75:6&7). Some people enrich themselves from other people’s businesses, by stealing from them. If you steal from another man’s job, you set up a sowing and reaping principle. You would reap more stealing from you.
IT is very surprising to find Christians who are unfaithful to others. These things should not be mentioned among Christians. Philippians 2:15 says, ‘ That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world ‘”; A good name is better than lots of money gained from cheating. Trust cannot be bought by any amount. Many people do not understand these things, and so trade their trust for all kinds of unrighteous gain.
Proverbs 11:1, says a false balance is an abomination unto the Lord. God is the judge and therefore He promotes. If you do abominable things like cheating your fellow men, would He (God), promote you? His promotion is true wealth. This unfaithfulness is seen taking place in private businesses, state enterprises, the church, and business dealings among close associates. Now please get this point clear, when you defraud a friend or any person at all, the law of our country states, Mr. B against the Republic. It does not say Mr. B cheated Mr. A. In a similar vein, if you cheat your neighbor to enrich yourself, you have not only sinned against that person, but against God. You would end up in hell fire if you don’t repent.
I am the Light of the world. There is no darkness at all in me. I love all men and treat all persons with absolute integrity. I see every task, in my care as God’s business. I am therefore very faithful to all. God promotes me always and increases me in everything. Glory be to His name.
Psalms 75:6 & 7KJV for promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.
Prov. 11:1 & 3 KJV A false balance is abomination to the LORD: but a just weight is his delight. The integrity of the upright shall guide them: but the perverseness of transgressors shall destroy them.
