“So he called ten of his servants, delivered to them ten minas, and said to them, ‘Do business till I come.’” (Luke 19:13 NKJV).


As Jesus and His disciples were traveling to Jerusalem, He told them the parable of the minas. The Scripture says that He did this to help them understand that it wasn’t yet the time for Him to set up His earthly kingdom. Indeed He would soon be going away from them “to receive for himself a kingdom and to return.” What did He expect from them while He was away? Jesus said, “Do business till I come.”
We don’t know when Jesus will return, but we know this––we are to do the Lord’s business till He comes again. What are you doing with the “mina,” the spiritual investment, that the Lord has given you?
Don’t be tempted to fear or to make excuses during this season. Bloom where you are planted. Let’s be about the Lord’s business today!
PRAYER: Dear Father, thank You for the spiritual deposit You have given us by grace through faith in Jesus. Strengthen us to grow in grace and to be about the Lord’s business until He comes again. In Jesus’ name, amen.
