Take care...

"For it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants and entrusted to them his property." - Matthew 25:14
Today many people lease cars. At the end of three years they turn the vehicle in to the dealership, who is the actual owner. Everything has to be in good shape at the time of transfer or there will be a fee to pay. While you can trash your own vehicle all you want, you had better take care of that which belongs to another.
The above principle is timeless, and Jesus reminds us that we are no different than those who lease vehicles. Paul stated in Acts 17:28, "In Him we live and move and have our very being", and in Romans 11:36, "For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things".  From life to every gift and ability, it all belongs to God, and we need to take care of that which belongs to another.
Take a few moments and do an inventory my friend. What condition will your "vehicle" be in when the time comes to turn it over to the Owner? But more than the condition is the usage. Have you used it to the glory and honor of the Owner? Don't trash and misuse what doesn't belong to you... Be careful, be wise and be a "faithful servant".
