"Tumugon ang Panginoon:  "Sino nga ang tapat at matalinong alipin?  Hindi ba siya ang pamamahalain ng kanyang panginoon sa sambahayan nito, upang magbigay sa ibang mga alipin ng kanilang pagkain sa karampatang panahon?"  Luke 12:42
"Ang mapapagkatiwalaan sa maliit na bagay ay mapapagkatiwalaan din sa malaking bagay; ang magdaraya sa maliit na bagay ay magdaraya rin sa malaking bagay." Luke 16:10

"Nagkaisa ang damdami't isipan ng lahat ng sumampalataya at di itinuring ninuman na sarili niya ang kanyang mga ari-arian, kundi para sa lahat.  Walang nagdarahop sa kanila, sapagka't ipinagbili nila ang kanilang lupa at bahay, at ang pinagbilhan ay ibinigay sa mga apostol. Ipinamahagi naman ito ayon sa pangangailangan ng bawa't isa."  Acts 4:32-35

Chapter 12:35-48
Vigilant and Faithful Servants

35 “Gird your loins and light your lamps 

36and be like servants who await their master’s return from a wedding, ready to open immediately when he comes and knocks.

37Blessed are those servants whom the master finds vigilant on his arrival. Amen, I say to you, he will gird himself, have them recline at table, and proceed to wait on them. 

38And should he come in the second or third watch and find them prepared in this way, blessed are those servants. 

39 Be sure of this: if the master of the house had known the hour when the thief was coming, he would not have let his house be broken into. 

40You also must be prepared, for at an hour you do not expect, the Son of Man will come.” 

41Then Peter said, “Lord, is this parable meant for us or for everyone?” 

42And the Lord replied, “Who, then, is the faithful and prudent steward whom the master will put in charge of his servants to distribute [the] food allowance at the proper time? 

43Blessed is that servant whom his master on arrival finds doing so. 

44Truly, I say to you, he will put him in charge of all his property. 

45But if that servant says to himself, ‘My master is delayed in coming,’ and begins to beat the menservants and the maidservants, to eat and drink and get drunk, 

46then that servant’s master will come on an unexpected day and at an unknown hour and will punish him severely and assign him a place with the unfaithful. 

47That servant who knew his master’s will but did not make preparations nor act in accord with his will shall be beaten severely;

48and the servant who was ignorant of his master’s will but acted in a way deserving of a severe beating shall be beaten only lightly. Much will be required of the person entrusted with much, and still more will be demanded of the person entrusted with more.

Chapter 16:1-13
The Parable of the Dishonest Steward

1Then he also said to his disciples, “A rich man had a steward who was reported to him for squandering his property. 

2He summoned him and said, ‘What is this I hear about you? Prepare a full account of your stewardship, because you can no longer be my steward.’ 

3The steward said to himself, ‘What shall I do, now that my master is taking the position of steward away from me? I am not strong enough to dig and I am ashamed to beg. 

4I know what I shall do so that, when I am removed from the stewardship, they may welcome me into their homes.’ 

5He called in his master’s debtors one by one. To the first he said, ‘How much do you owe my master?’ 

6 He replied, ‘One hundred measures of olive oil.’ He said to him, ‘Here is your promissory note. Sit down and quickly write one for fifty.’ 

7Then to another he said, ‘And you, how much do you owe?’ He replied, ‘One hundred kors of wheat.’ He said to him, ‘Here is your promissory note; write one for eighty.’ 

8And the master commended that dishonest steward for acting prudently. 

Application of the Parable. “For the children of this world are more prudent in dealing with their own generation than are the children of light.

9I tell you, make friends for yourselves with dishonest wealth, so that when it fails, you will be welcomed into eternal dwellings.

10 The person who is trustworthy in very small matters is also trustworthy in great ones; and the person who is dishonest in very small matters is also dishonest in great ones.

11If, therefore, you are not trustworthy with dishonest wealth, who will trust you with true wealth? 

12If you are not trustworthy with what belongs to another, who will give you what is yours? 

13No servant can serve two masters. He will either hate one and love the other, or be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.” 


Chapter 13:1-5
A Call to Repentance

1At that time some people who were present there told him about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mingled with the blood of their sacrifices. 

2He said to them in reply, “Do you think that because these Galileans suffered in this way they were greater sinners than all other Galileans?

3By no means! But I tell you, if you do not repent, you will all perish as they did! 

4Or those eighteen people who were killed when the tower at Siloam fell on them—do you think they were more guilty than everyone else who lived in Jerusalem? 

5By no means! But I tell you, if you do not repent, you will all perish as they did!”

Chapter 16:19-31
The Parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus

19There was a rich man who dressed in purple garments and fine linen and dined sumptuously each day. 

20And lying at his door was a poor man named Lazarus, covered with sores,

21who would gladly have eaten his fill of the scraps that fell from the rich man’s table. Dogs even used to come and lick his sores. 

22When the poor man died, he was carried away by angels to the bosom of Abraham. The rich man also died and was buried, 

23and from the netherworld, where he was in torment, he raised his eyes and saw Abraham far off and Lazarus at his side. 

24And he cried out, ‘Father Abraham, have pity on me. Send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, for I am suffering torment in these flames.’ 

25Abraham replied, ‘My child, remember that you received what was good during your lifetime while Lazarus likewise received what was bad; but now he is comforted here, whereas you are tormented.

26Moreover, between us and you a great chasm is established to prevent anyone from crossing who might wish to go from our side to yours or from your side to ours.’ 

27He said, ‘Then I beg you, father, send him to my father’s house, 

28for I have five brothers, so that he may warn them, lest they too come to this place of torment.’ 

29But Abraham replied, ‘They have Moses and the prophets. Let them listen to them.’ 

30 He said, ‘Oh no, father Abraham, but if someone from the dead goes to them, they will repent.’ 

31Then Abraham said, ‘If they will not listen to Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded if someone should rise from the dead.’”

Chapter 18:1-8
The Parable of the Persistent Widow

1 Then he told them a parable about the necessity for them to pray always without becoming weary.He said, 

2“There was a judge in a certain town who neither feared God nor respected any human being.
3And a widow in that town used to come to him and say, ‘Render a just decision for me against my adversary.’ 

4For a long time the judge was unwilling, but eventually he thought, ‘While it is true that I neither fear God nor respect any human being, 

5 because this widow keeps bothering me I shall deliver a just decision for her lest she finally come and strike me.’” 

6The Lord said, “Pay attention to what the dishonest judge says. 

7Will not God then secure the rights of his chosen ones who call out to him day and night? Will he be slow to answer them? 

8I tell you, he will see to it that justice is done for them speedily. But when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?”

1 Peter
Chapter 2:13-17
Christian Citizens

13Be subject to every human institution for the Lord’s sake, whether it be to the king as supreme

14or to governors as sent by him for the punishment of evildoers and the approval of those who do good. 

15For it is the will of God that by doing good you may silence the ignorance of foolish people. 

16Be free, yet without using freedom as a pretext for evil, but as slaves of God.

17Give honor to all, love the community, fear God, honor the king.

Chapter 15:1-17
The Vine and the Branches

1 I am the true vine, and my Father is the vine grower.

2He takes away every branch in me that does not bear fruit, and every one that does he prunes so that it bears more fruit. 

3You are already pruned because of the word that I spoke to you.

4Remain in me, as I remain in you. Just as a branch cannot bear fruit on its own unless it remains on the vine, so neither can you unless you remain in me. 

5I am the vine, you are the branches. Whoever remains in me and I in him will bear much fruit, because without me you can do nothing. 

6 Anyone who does not remain in me will be thrown out like a branch and wither; people will gather them and throw them into a fire and they will be burned. 

7If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask for whatever you want and it will be done for you.

8By this is my Father glorified, that you bear much fruit and become my disciples.

9As the Father loves me, so I also love you. Remain in my love.

10If you keep my commandments, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and remain in his love. 

11 I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and your joy may be complete.
12This is my commandment: love one another as I love you.

13 No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. 

14You are my friends if you do what I command you. 

15I no longer call you slaves, because a slave does not know what his master is doing. I have called you friends, because I have told you everything I have heard from my Father.

16It was not you who chose me, but I who chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit that will remain, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name he may give you.

17This I command you: love one another.

Chapter 4:32-37
Life in the Christian Community

32The community of believers was of one heart and mind, and no one claimed that any of his possessions was his own, but they had everything in common. 

33With great power the apostles bore witness to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great favor was accorded them all. 

34 There was no needy person among them, for those who owned property or houses would sell them, bring the proceeds of the sale, 

35and put them at the feet of the apostles, and they were distributed to each according to need. 

36 Thus Joseph, also named by the apostles Barnabas (which is translated “son of encouragement”), a Levite, a Cypriot by birth, 

37sold a piece of property that he owned, then brought the money and put it at the feet of the apostles.

Chapter 1:2-11
Perseverance in Trial

2 Consider it all joy, my brothers, when you encounter various trials,

3for you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 

4And let perseverance be perfect, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. 

5But if any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God who gives to all generously and ungrudgingly, and he will be given it.

6But he should ask in faith, not doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed about by the wind.

7For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord, 

8since he is a man of two minds, unstable in all his ways. 

9The brother in lowly circumstances should take pride in his high standing,

10and the rich one in his lowliness, for he will pass away “like the flower of the field.”

11For the sun comes up with its scorching heat and dries up the grass, its flower droops, and the beauty of its appearance vanishes. So will the rich person fade away in the midst of his pursuits.

2 Corinthians
Chapter 8:1-15
Generosity in Giving
1 We want you to know, brothers, of the grace of God that has been given to the churches of Macedonia,

2 for in a severe test of affliction, the abundance of their joy and their profound poverty overflowed in a wealth of generosity on their part. 

3 For according to their means, I can testify, and beyond their means, spontaneously, 

4they begged us insistently for the favor of taking part in the service to the holy ones,

5and this, not as we expected, but they gave themselves first to the Lord and to us through the will of God, 

6so that we urged Titus that, as he had already begun, he should also complete for you this gracious act also.

7 Now as you excel in every respect, in faith, discourse, knowledge, all earnestness, and in the love we have for you, may you excel in this gracious act also. 

8I say this not by way of command, but to test the genuineness of your love by your concern for others. 

9 For you know the gracious act of our Lord Jesus Christ, that for your sake he became poor although he was rich, so that by his poverty you might become rich. 

10And I am giving counsel in this matter, for it is appropriate for you who began not only to act but to act willingly last year:

11complete it now, so that your eager willingness may be matched by your completion of it out of what you have. 

12 For if the eagerness is there, it is acceptable according to what one has, not according to what one does not have; 

13not that others should have relief while you are burdened, but that as a matter of equality 

14your surplus at the present time should supply their needs, so that their surplus may also supply your needs, that there may be equality. 

15As it is written:
“Whoever had much did not have more,
and whoever had little did not have less.”

1 Peter
Chapter 4:12-19
Trial of Persecution

12Beloved, do not be surprised that a trial by fire is occurring among you, as if something strange were happening to you.

13But rejoice to the extent that you share in the sufferings of Christ, so that when his glory is revealed you may also rejoice exultantly.

14If you are insulted for the name of Christ, blessed are you, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you.

15But let no one among you be made to suffer as a murderer, a thief, an evildoer, or as an intriguer. 

16But whoever is made to suffer as a Christian should not be ashamed but glorify God because of the name. 

17For it is time for the judgment to begin with the household of God; if it begins with us, how will it end for those who fail to obey the gospel of God? 

18“And if the righteous one is barely saved,
where will the godless and the sinner appear?”

19As a result, those who suffer in accord with God’s will hand their souls over to a faithful creator as they do good.

Chapter 6:1-10
Life in the Community of Christ

1Brothers, even if a person is caught in some transgression, you who are spiritual should correct that one in a gentle spirit, looking to yourself, so that you also may not be tempted.

2Bear one another’s burdens, and so you will fulfill the law of Christ.

3 For if anyone thinks he is something when he is nothing, he is deluding himself. 

4 Each one must examine his own work, and then he will have reason to boast with regard to himself alone, and not with regard to someone else; 

5for each will bear his own load. 

6 One who is being instructed in the word should share all good things with his instructor.

7Make no mistake: God is not mocked, for a person will reap only what he sows, 

8because the one who sows for his flesh will reap corruption from the flesh, but the one who sows for the spirit will reap eternal life from the spirit.

9Let us not grow tired of doing good, for in due time we shall reap our harvest, if we do not give up.

10So then, while we have the opportunity, let us do good to all, but especially to those who belong to the family of the faith.


Chapter 103:6-10
Praise of Divine Goodness

6 The LORD does righteous deeds, brings justice to all the oppressed.

7He made known his ways to Moses,
to the Israelites his deeds.

8Merciful and gracious is the LORD,
slow to anger, abounding in mercy.

9He will not always accuse,
and nurses no lasting anger;

10He has not dealt with us as our sins merit,
nor requited us as our wrongs deserve.


EFESO 4:17-18  5:15-17 HEBREWS 4"7

17Sa pangalan ng Panginoon, ito ang sinasabi ko sa inyo: huwag na kayong mamuhay tulad ng pamumuhay ng mga walang pananampalataya sa Diyos. Walang kabuluhan ang kanilang iniisip, 18at wala silang pang-unawa. Dahil sa kanilang kamangmangan at katigasan ng ulo, wala silang bahagi sa buhay na kaloob ng Diyos.
15Kaya't mag-ingat kayo kung paano kayo namumuhay. Mamuhay kayong tulad ng matatalino at di tulad ng mga mangmang. 16Samantalahin ninyo ang bawat pagkakataon na kayo'y makagawa ng mabuti sapagkat punung-puno ng kasamaan ang daigdig ngayon. 17Huwag kayong maging hangal. Unawain ninyo kung ano ang kalooban ng Panginoon.



"Tinatawag kayo ng Diyos sa pamamagitan ng Mabuting Balitang ipinahahayag namin sa inyo, upang makasama sa kaluwalhatian ng ating Panginoong Jesu-Cristo."
