“Take care of the house”; that’s what the master told his housekeeper before he went for a wedding party.
But the word “Take care” didn’t sound appealing to the housekeeper. He preferred to “take charge” since the master was not around. He felt his master’s absence was a moment of pleasure for him.
His master got to the wedding reception successfully, except that he forgot his golden pen, which he needed to sign an important document. He quickly sent one of his guards to get his pen from the house. But unfortunately, the housekeeper couldn’t hear the guard knocking, because the sound from the music he was playing was louder than every other sound. He couldn’t even hear the master’s baby crying behind him.
The master was curious, and this time, he sent his driver. The driver got there faster, but his quick arrival didn’t help him. He joined the guard, and they both knocked and knocked, until they got tired.
People were waiting for the master to sign so that the wedding could continue, but he had no pen. And so he decided to rush down by himself. To his amazement, he met his driver and his guard at the gate. Though he was their master, but he had to join the “knock”.
The housekeeper finally heard the baby’s cry. He tuned down the volume of the sound system, and suddenly, he heard the knock.
The master came into the house, nothing had been done, his baby was soaked with tears, imagine a two hour cry for hunger. The house was completely cluttered. His master sacked him, because he was a housekeeper who didn’t keep the house.
Although this is a fiction, but like the housekeeper, we are also Kingdom keepers, ordained to keep the kingdom of God till Jesus comes again. But are we really keeping God’s kingdom?
Jesus has gone for a “wedding”, and we don’t know when He’d return. But whenever He comes, will He find us doing what He had assigned to us?
Let me conclude with this; find your purpose, and keep advancing the kingdom with it. Don’t get distracted by worldly cares, those things will make you lose your place. May God give us understanding!
God bless you, I love you, and don’t forget to share!
