Those To Whom Much Is Given...

From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked. Luke 12:48

We didn't ask our newborn babies to do household chores. But as the kids grew, well, so did their responsibilities. As they grew they graduated from picking up their toys to cleaning the kitchen and even making dinner sometimes. Now we call it adulting - doing things that adults do. That's because we want our kids to grow up to be responsible adults.

Jesus knows that you won't keep growing into maturity if you don't give back. It's just how life works. All that blessing he's poured into you, all that personal growth you've gone through - it will stall out and you'll plateau if you don't start giving it away to others. 

What are the barriers you see inside yourself to giving away your time, your money, your heart? Why do you think Jesus keeps asking for more?
