REFLECTION. The steward, on Luke 12. By Fabian Massa

Translated from Spanish to English with Google Translator.


And the Lord :

- Then is the faithful and wise steward , whom his master will put in charge of the servants to repartirles food in due time? 43 Blessed is that servant whose master , returning , finds him doing his duty . 44 I tell you what will set him over all his possessions. 45 Butwhat if that servant says to himself, 'My master is delaying his return " , and then begins to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink and get drunk ! 46 The lord of that servant will come on a day when the servant least expect and when least expected . Then punish him severely and will impose the sentence received by unbelievers. Luke 12.42 - 46 , NIV .

Who is the " faithful butler "?

Just anyone who has understood that has been redeemed by Christ , who is now his servant , and has received the primary mission of a priest of his house ( Revelation 1.6) . This call is for everyone, because the function of the male head is pastoring his family. Among the functions of the steward is to " serve the food (the Word of God ) in due time to his servants."

From the beginning this slogan has been established , Moses embodied in the Act:

6 ' These are the commands , decrees and laws the Lord your God commanded me to teach you , to put them into practice in the land you are entering to possess , 2 so that all your life you and your sons and your grandchildren will honor the Lord your God by keeping all the precepts and commandments that I give you , and that you may enjoy long life. 3 Hear, O Israel , and strive to obey . So you will be fine and you're a very numerous people in the land flowing with milk and honey , just like I promised the Lord , the God of your ancestors .

4 " Hear, O Israel : The Lord our God is one Lord . 5 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. 6 upon your hearts these words that I command you today . 7 Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you rise. 8 Tie them to your hands as a sign them on your foreheads , 9 Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates . Deuteronomy 6.1 - 9. NIV .

Record yourself

To be able to speak with authority the Word of God, I have to have a rule of life ( implement ) for it to need to know and understand Scripture.


Impress them , talk

Refers to family worship , where the father is who ministers the Word.

Tie them to your hands

Let all your actions are consistent with Scripture


Them on your foreheads

All our plans are that are passed through the filter of the Word , ie must not conflict with God present .

It is a command of Christ . Obey , lest we have a portion with the unbelievers instead of the children of God.


The function of the Church is to teach men to be priests of his home.
