To whom much is given much is expected. We are extremely lucky to not be living in places around the world where all they’ve literally got to cling to is their faith in God. That’s what keeps them sane and hopeful. In a way, they have more of a reason to believe that there is no God that loves them while they are going through all that they do. It could’ve been any of us. Why weren’t we born in those places? And if we were why did we get to leave while others are facing turmoil and death everyday? We’ll never be able to comprehend it. Instead of using all we have: the technology, money, power and freedom to praise God and just simply be grateful, we use those things to justify why we don’t need God. To continue in our “self-made” attitude. To whom much is given much is expected. God will ask. That’s why it says in Matthew 19:23-24 that it is painfully hard for a rich man to make heaven. Not because wealth is bad but because we start trusting it instead of God. We can easily trust our bonus and jobs for our next meal while others in those places can ONLY trust God.
We have to live life realizing we CANNOT and shouldn’t even try doing anything without Him.
