Use Your Time, Talent, and Treasure
for God’s Kingdom
“Write the vision and make it plain on tablets, that he may run who reads it.”
(Habakkuk 2:2, NKJV)
God’s revelation of himself and his plan of redemption for humankind have been clearly written in the Bible. We have reflected on:
- the brevity of life,
- the temporary nature of this world versus the eternal world we are heading for,
- our purpose for being here,
- the opportunity for us to partake of the divine nature,
- soaking our hearts in the Word of God,
- sowing to the Spirit,
- flowing with the Spirit, and
- the opportunity to build treasure in heaven
Understanding God’s revelation of himself makes this truth clear: Our time, talent, and treasure are to be used for God’s kingdom. We must decide whether we are going to take advantage of what God has revealed to us. Just as God gives us a choice in deciding where we will spend eternity, he also gives us the choice of being consumed by selfish, temporary desires, or by living for his kingdom purposes. If we choose the latter, there is the promise of great reward in the life to come. This reward is just on of the tremendous incentives for us to find the purpose God has for our lives and the particular works he wants us to do.
We do not have forever to make these decisions. Time is passing quickly. What are you doing with the time God has given you?
Have you captured God’s vision for you? In what ways are you pursuing his vision? What opportunities is the Holy Spirit putting before you to make your time, talent, and treasure echo into eternity? How are you responding to those opportunities?

“Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom the master has put in charge of the servants in his household to give them their food at the proper time?” (Matthew 24:45)
“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 mater’s happiness!’” (Matthew 25:21)
