Ah! I cannot miss this part of Prophet Jeremiah’s prudent and discreet execution of the word of God which should be great lesson for us as servants of God. I have watched many servants of God receive the Word of God clearly but alas because of their lackadaisical and shabby way of execution they get into a mess which sometimes sabotages their ministry.  Money handling should be done with utmost care! Warning!

Proverbs 27:12The prudent sees danger and hides himself, but the simple go on and suffer for it.”

Proverbs 13:16In everything the prudent acts with knowledge, but a fool flaunts his folly.”

I always tell my husband, ‘we need to be extremely careful in handling money and be brutally shrewd and astute.’  I have to use the word ‘brutal’ because some people easily fall prey to the stories of the enemy, we should never part with the money unless we hear clearly from God.  Though God gave us many projects like School, Church and Children Home for the poor; yet, many times, our bank balance had been zero for several years, believe me, we would have enough money just to run the show. We were giving free lunch, uniforms, stationary and also free accommodation for few students who were children of single parents, all this had to be done with minimum resource.  Servants of God need to be judicious,  cautions and sensible. 

God said when you are faithful with the ‘little’ then He can give you ‘more’!

  • Jeremiah weighed out the silver for him,  seventeen shekels of silver.
  • He signed and sealed the deed, and
  • called in witnesses
  • weighed out the silver on the scales.
  • There was a private and an open copy of the deed
  • he was ordered to lay them up in an earthen vessel
  • though he was dealing with relatives known to him; yet, Jeremiah shrewdly handled  the purchase

 

Proverbs 14:15The simple believes everything, but the prudent gives thought to his steps.”

The last part of this sermon will come tomorrow on Christmas day! God bless you!
