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 v 48
Uncle Ben’s words of wisdom to Peter Parker in Spider-man: “With great power comes great responsibility.”
We will be held responsible for what we have. Time, energy, money and abilities. We can ask God for wisdom so that we use what we have to his glory. Romans 12 v 1 says, “I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.
God of grace,
it is our delight and our devotion
to give these gifts to you.
All we are and all we have
are yours alone.
Accept this joyful offering
as a token of our abiding love:
use it to bring peace, justice
and comfort to all the world, Amen.
