Reign of God

Luke 12:48

“Much will be required of the person entrusted with much, and still more will be demanded of the person entrusted with more.”

We read Jesus’ words but do we follow them? Our culture espouses a philosophy of grabbing more and more for yourself…protecting it…and then perhaps sharing a few scraps with those in need. But Jesus said that the more you have the more you are expected to give. And that doesn’t just mean when it comes to wealth and possessions. Each of us has to examine our own hearts and ask the question: Am I sharing as best I can my time, talent and treasure with those in need? Each of us is being challenged by Jesus to change so that we are more and more generous. All that I have is gift. Everything I am and everything I have…has been given to me by my Creator. Christians see God as the Trinity…a perfect relationship of giving and receiving. How can I mirror that relationship and enter the flow of this same generosity? By sharing our gifts! So if you are an artist…be artistic. If you are musical…be musical. If you are a nurturer…be nurturing. If you are hospitable…be hospitable. If you are a teacher…be a teacher. If you are a manager…be a manager. But do everything with a loving, compassionate and generous heart.
