Luke 12:48b (Jesus said) “…From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.” (NIV)
Have you ever wondered why you have been so blessed mentally, financially, emotionally, and spiritually? Could it be that God has given you so much so that you can bless others?
For me, this is a haunting verse from the mouth of Jesus. I have been given so much and what have I done with these blessings from God? He has given me an amazing brain, salvation, a great heritage, a great wife, His Word, money, children, a wonderful occupation, friends, etc.
In other words, He has “entrusted” me with so much and He desires that I share with others. Will I hoard these resources and abilities or will I help mentor someone or give much to others so that God is glorified?
Could it be that God has blessed American Christians so much financially so that we have the ability to help the billions that live in extreme poverty? Has He given us so many spiritual resources so that we can share with others in a greater way the love of Jesus?
He has done His part, what will we do with our part?
