Luke 12:48

This morning I was feeling very selfish.  I was complaining to God about all that is on my plate and how I just want a break, something for me me me, a chance to run away.  While yes, we do need to have our batteries recharged at times, this verse popped into my head.  I'm quite sure it was the whisper of the Holy Spirit:

Everyone to whom much was given, of him much will be required.... Luke 12:48

I realized anew the importance and significance my role here on earth for the Kingdom of Heaven is.  I have been given much, and much is required of me.  Instead of feeling overwhelmed, I felt honored that the Lord has entrusted me with so much!  The more the Lord blesses us with, the more He expects of us.

There is also peace in the knowledge that when we truly do need respite, the Lord will grant it to us.
