We all get e-mails forwarded to us from family and friends from time to time. The jokes, videos, photos and sometimes inspirational messages oftentimes give us something to think about.
I once received a PowerPoint e-mail from a priest friend who is a retired Air Force chaplain, and it relates perfectly to what living the stewardship way of life is all about.
We will leave out the pictures and leave you with the words from “10 Things God Won’t Ask You on That Day“:
1. God won’t ask you what kind of car you drove. He’ll ask you how many people you drove who didn’t have transportation.
2. God won’t ask the square footage of your house. He’ll ask you how many people you welcomed into your home.
3. God won’t ask you about the clothes you had in your closet. He’ll ask you how many people you helped clothe.
4. God won’t ask you what your highest salary was. He’ll ask you if you compromised your character to obtain it.
5. God won’t ask you what your job title was. He’ll ask you if you performed your job to the best of your ability.
6. God won’t ask you how many friends you had. He’ll ask you how many people you befriended.
7. God won’t ask you in what neighborhood you lived. He’ll ask you how you treated your neighbors.
8. God won’t ask you about the color of your skin. He’ll ask you about the content of your character.
9. God won’t ask you why it took you so long to seek salvation. He’ll lovingly take you to your mansion in heaven.
10. God won’t have to ask you how many people you spread this message to. He’ll already know.
God constantly gives us so many gifts. Living stewardship as a way of life helps us to share what we been given by God.
