Luke 12:48

THE INWARD LIFE OF A STEWARD
Understanding Ownership

From everyone who has been given much, much will be required; and to whom they entrusted much, of him they will ask all the more.

Jesus says about those who have accumulated a surplus in Luke 12:48, “…From everyone who has been given much, much will be required; and to whom they entrusted much, of him they will ask all the more (NASB).” This sobering statement of Jesus informs us that the more the Lord entrusts to us, the more accountable we will be for what we do with it. This is nowhere more true than in regard to how much and where we deploy the “much” we have been entrusted with to advance His Kingdom. Are you more inclined to pile it up or to pass it on? Are you living more like a bucket or more like a pipe? When the Owner reviews how you managed His funds, how will His audit come out? Think about it.
