The challenge this week is to examine yourself in light of Luke 12:48.  What has God blessed you with?  Are you being a faithful and wise manager of it?  What have you buried in the ground?  Have you set down on your gift?  Are you using your resources of time, talent and treasury in a way that would be pleasing to God?  How long are you going to be on a serving vacation or sabbatical?  Are you letting people prevent you from serving?  Are you being selfish by making what you have been given about you and not about God?  Remember…To Whom Much Is Given, Much Will Be Required!
