The parables of Jesus teach sublime truths in simple terms. Every Christian is given a great treasure in the call to serve God by following Jesus. Every Christian owes God an accounting of stewardship.

What are my gifts? How do I use these gifts? Am I ready to account for all that God has given to me?

O Jesus, strengthen my resolve to respond fully to the needs that You entrust to my care today. May I be ready to account for all that You give me.
