Luke 16:10-12 “He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much. If therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches? And if ye have not been faithful in that which is another man’s, who shall give you that which is your own?”
Free will is meant for all those who would not use it to usurp over others, but rather to benefit others before themselves.
Therefore God alone has shown Himself worthy of supreme authority, being unable to be tempted despite coming down within our own fragile flesh. All but Christ have fallen short of the glory of God, even the meekest succumbing to temptation, but just as our master has shown Himself worthy to rule over all things, we also are showing what dominion we are worthy of receiving in the next life. The more charity, the more reward, for love is the currency of Heaven. Some will rule over nations, others will have mansions, but to be a mere servant in the house of the Lord, that is more than any could desire. I say these things not as if we should do right for reward, but in remembrance that our God Himself, is the reward. Do not lose your reward. Hold on tightly until the end, enduring as you are shaped into His own likeness in the image of the blessed hope and treasure of Heaven, indeed our reward draws near.
“If ye love me, keep my commandments.”
“Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”
