Responsibility for Our God-Given Purposes

Taking Responsibility for Our God-Given Purposes

To whom much is given, much is required.

God takes into account our knowledge, opportunities, and skills whenever judging our actions.

Scripture states this as a warning:

Luke 12:48: 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.

But Scripture also states it as a privilege:

Ephesians 2:10: we are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

God gives us knowledge so we will walk in wisdom.

He gives us skills and opportunities so our service to His kingdom can be enjoyable, meaningful, and effective.

We can choose to be the faithful servants or the unfaithful servant described in the parable of the talents.

Whether street cleaner or executive, store owner or homemaker, every resource, skill, and opportunity is a gift from our Lord.

Let’s use them for His glory!
