Everyone knows that a day is coming that will be their last. And, presumably, most people worry about it.

What’s really of interest is the part where the master gives the servant charge of his other servants while he’s away. The servant thinks to himself, “I’ll do as I please while he’s gone. I have plenty of time before he comes back to get everything done.” Isn’t that the way it is? Each day passes and it’s one day less than yesterday. But, it’s a slow process and before one knows it, years have gone by. That’s when the worrying time sets in.

Luke 12:48 is a wonderful reminder of how much is at stake. With knowledge and privilege comes responsibility. To fail for someone entrusted with so much brings a double whammy. Failure is a poor choice in someone who had every chance to do well. The wise person will finish his tasks and fall asleep at peace in the arms of God.
