The Deaf Can – Be Faithful Servants

The Deaf Can Be Faithful Servants

“Who then is a faithful and wise servant,
whom his lord hath made ruler over his household,
to give them meat in due season? Blessed is that servant,
whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.”
– Matthew 24:45-46

Sometimes my wife, Peggy, makes a list of things she wants me to do around the house when she is gone – cut grass, pull weeds, feed animals, wash vehicles, vacuum, clean my bathroom, and take out the trash.  I check the list and try to do everything before she comes home.  When she comes home, she usually gives me a “thumbs up” to show that she appreciates it. But if I did not do the work and made excuses for my laziness, I would not get a “thumbs up.” The Lord gave His servants a list of things to do before He returned, but some did not obey and do it. The Bible says, “But if that servant shall say in his heart, my Lord delayeth his coming.”  The servants put off the work and ignored the list. The lazy servants never got a “well done” or a “thumbs up” for a good job. We should be good faithful servants for the Lord. We should be eager to serve the Lord. He died for us and we should live for Him.  Don’t be lazy.  Be a good and faithful servant. God has given us the Bible, and it has a list of things that we need to do before He returns.  You should live daily for the Lord.  Show others the love of God. Witness to others. Be a soul-winner. Be faithful to God. Read your Bible and pray daily for your friends, your church, missionaries, and especially your pastor.  Jesus has left you a list to do.  When He comes back will He be pleased and give you a “thumbs up?”

The Deaf can be faithful servants to serve the Lord.  The Deaf can be eager to follow  the Lord and do the list that He  has left for them to do. Deaf can help others. Deaf can  volunteer to be ushers, to help in special services, and help serving and cleaning tables.  Go to your leaders and be willing to work. Deaf can be good, faithful servants. I am Deaf, and I desire to be found faithful and to get a “thumbs up” when my Lord returns. How about you?
