I’ve Been Given Much

For Christmas my parents gave me the book Kisses From Katie by Katie Davis. From what I've read so far it’s an excellent book. She shared a verse in the book that stuck out to me…"From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.” Luke 12:48. I have been given much. And I wonder what it is that God wants from me.

Missions has been a big subject that seems to come up quite often in my life lately. I have no idea what it is that God wants me to do when I grow up but sometimes I wonder if He’s quietly beginning to nudge me towards a life of missions. I have no idea where or what kind of work..but I wonder about it sometimes. As I read Kisses From Katie I read about her life in Uganda..about the poverty there..about her love for the people there…about how she has had a life of much..and then she comes into contact with people who have so very little. And yet people there are praising God and they are thanking Him for what they have. And then here I am taking for granted the things I have and not often enough thanking God for everything He has given me.

“Oh give thanks to the Lord, for He is good, for His steadfast love endures forever!” Psalm 107:1
