In our society a common way to pass an inheritance to is through a trust. The person who sets up the trust appoints an executor of this trust. The role of the executor is to distribute the assets to the people outlined in the trust. This is a good option when done properly. There is a key person in this process. This key person is the executor. If the executor mishandles the funds often those who are supposed to receive their share come up shorthanded. Unfortunately, this can cause harm to those who need it.
Spiritually, God set up a trust. This trust is far more valuable than money, it is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. 1 Thessalonians 2:4 says, “But as we were allowed of God to be put in trust with the gospel, even so we speak; not as pleasing Men, but God, which trieth our hearts.” We are given the job of executing this trust to others. Our responsibility is to share this Gospel with the whole world.
Sadly, most of us are unjust executors. We live off the goodness given to us at the expense of others. We don’t leave our comfort zone to share our faith with others. In biblical terms we are unjust stewards. One day we will give an account with what we did with this trust, and it may not be an enjoyable experience. Even worse than disappointing our savoir is the fact that many will spend an eternity in Hell because our laziness. 2 Corinthians 4:3 says, “But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:” Jesus said in John 9:4. “ I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.” Our time on this earth is brief, let’s make sure the trust God put in us is well placed.
