Matthew 25:4 — “… but the wise took flasks of oil with their lamps.”
Why did they take flasks of oil with them? Because they listened to the Bridegroom’s words and believed them. Our actions always start with and flow from our beliefs. What do your actions in the realm of stewardship say about what you believe?
