Personal and Corporate Development | Kingdom Law



What kingdom law underlies all personal and corporate development?

This is called the “law of use.” Jesus told about the rich man who was going away on a trip and distributed different resources to each of his servants (Matt. 25: 14 – 30). Then he said, “Do business with these until I come back.” Two servants invested what they were given, but the third did not. When the master came back, he asked for an accounting. The first two were praised and rewarded for their diligence, but when Jesus told this story, the ending seemed unfair. He took away from the man who did not invest and gave his talent to the most fruitful investor, firmly announcing this law of the kingdom: “To everyone who has, more will be given . . . but from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away” (Matt. 25:29). In other words, if you use what is given to you, you will gain more. If you fail to use what is given to you, you will lose even what you think you have. Whether in physical, intellectual, financial, or relational dealings, whatever is given you, however small it is, use it. Use it diligently and use it on an ever-increasing scale. Set goals to increase whatever you do. This is the secret of the kingdom, which guarantees success to any Christian who applies it.
