– Then is the faithful and wise steward , whom his master will put in charge of the servants to repartirles food in due time? 43 Blessed is that servant whose master , returning , finds him doing his duty . 44 I tell you what will set him over all his possessions. 45 Butwhat if that servant says to himself, ‘My master is delaying his return » , and then begins to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink and get drunk ! 46 The lord of that servant will come on a day when the servant least expect and when least expected . Then punish him severely and will impose the sentence received by unbelievers.

Who is the » faithful butler «?

Just anyone who has understood that has been redeemed by Christ , who is now his servant , and has received the primary mission of a priest of his house ( Revelation 1.6) . This call is for everyone, because the function of the male head is pastoring his family. Among the functions of the steward is to » serve the food (the Word of God ) in due time to his servants.»
