To Whom Much Is Given

The saying “to whom much is given, much is required” did not begin with the movie Spiderman. It began in the Bible and is actually stated in Luke 12:48b which says “When someone has been given much, much will be required in return; and when someone has been entrusted with much, even more will be required” (New Living Translation).

God expects us to be good stewards over everything that we are given. This includes our health, our children, our homes, our finances…the list goes on. In crucifying our flesh daily, we have to remember that it’s not about us. It’s easy to be selfish and detach yourself physically and emotionally from others, but it does not bring about the righteousness that God is calling us to. It’s even tempting to ignore our responsibilities for immediate gratification, but we still must give an account of what we have been given AND what we did with it in the end.

Because of God’s grace, you are still here.  The destiny that God is calling you to awaits, so set your mind on things above (Colossians 3:2). Hang in there! The best is yet to come!
