Some of us may say that we have never seen the world in such chaos as it is now. Earthquakes, the Coronavirus, political tensions and uncertainty are at a point where any one of us might question whether we are nearing the end of the world as we know it. Read the words of Jesus:
“For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are but the beginning of the birth pains” (Matthew 24:7–8). This almost sounds like the news this morning. Jesus went on from this verse to describe much more that will take place before He returns. Whether we are still in the beginning or not, does not change His instructions that follow:
Then Jesus points to “the faithful and wise servant, whom his master has set over his household, to give them their food at the proper time. Blessed is that servant whom his master will find so doing when he comes” (24:45-46).
There is a great danger for believers to become so occupied with the troubles of this world, and even personal problems, that we neglect being faithful doing the Lord’s work. Having clear vision during chaos starts with your “alone time” with the Lord. That provides the only reliable source so you can feed your family and other believers the necessary spiritual food needed to sustain them.
I doubt most understand the importance of this principle, but I am praying you will take this seriously and not allow world troubles to distract you from being faithful in every area of your life!
