Matthew 25:21 "His master replied, 'Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master's happiness!'
Hockey Chat: After being picked up in an NHL draft, many players spend time in the minor leagues. It is there that they work hard to prove themselves worthy of moving up to the major league team. When they are called up, they are given a little bit of ice time. Then a bit more as they continue to prove themselves. It’s a matter of earning their ice time and spot in the NHL by proving themselves in the lesser leagues.
Life Lesson: In this passage, God is reminding us to be good stewards and caretakers of what we’ve been blessed with. Everything from our personal abilities to our material possessions has been given to us for the opportunity to show responsibility. His promise here is that we’ll enjoy even greater things when we are trustworthy with the small gifts we’ve been given now.
