1 Kings 11:28
Jeroboam was a capable and responsible man. Solomon saw that he was a good worker and made him overseer of all the work given to the sons of Joseph.
It is like a man going to another country. He called his servants and put them in charge of his property.
Who then is the faithful, thoughtful, and wise servant, whom his lord put in charge of his other servants, to give them their food at the proper time?
I tell you the truth, he will put him in charge of all that he has.
The servant who received five talents brought another five talents. He said: 'Lord, here are your five talents, plus the five I gained.'
The one who received two talents said: 'Lord you gave me two talents and I gained another two talents.'
If you have not been faithful in handling worldly wealth, how can you be trusted with true wealth?
1 Timothy 1:11
Sound teaching (doctrine) is according to the good news of the glory of the blessed (happy) God. This was committed to my trust.
On the contrary, they saw that I had been entrusted with the good news to people who are not circumcised. Just as Peter had been entrusted with the good news to the people who are circumcised.
Now I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace. This is able to build you up, and to give you the inheritance among all them that are sanctified.
1 Timothy 6:20
O Timothy, guard that which is committed to you. Turn away from the empty speeches that violate what is holy and from opposition and from false knowledge.
In his own time he made his word known through the message that was entrusted to me according to the commandment of God our Savior.
