I think we need to understand that God is looking for a response from us. What we choose to do or not do with God’s investment in us is consequential.
Do you think it makes any difference how we live in God’s Kingdom? Since we are saved by grace, does it make any difference whether we are awake or asleep in the light?
A good manager takes responsibility for maintaining and improving upon that which is given to them. Lousy managers say, ‘It’s not my job… You can only do so much… it’s better to do nothing than to take a risk. Really, what difference does it make?’
The problem with that style of management is the surprise visits made by the boss. God is not impressed when we are careless with what we have been given.
