God will demand more from the one who has been entrusted with much - Daily Bible Reflections August 27,2013


“Woe to you scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites...” – Matthew 23:23
Years ago, a pastor and his wife took a baby from a children’s home under the pretext of adopting her. They raised her while brainwashing her into believing that God wanted her to be their family’s servant. For 20 years, she served them while she was being abused, until she called the police.
       God has appointed us into positions of authority — whether we are preachers, pastors, teachers, older siblings, doctors, lawyers or ministry heads. But that authority goes hand in hand with the responsibility to care for and guard the welfare of the people placed under our power.
       Sometimes, the power that comes with the position of authority can intoxicate people so much that it leads to  abuse. So when you’re tempted to abuse your authority, remember Jesus’ warning to such people when He said, “You serpents... how will you escape the sentence of hell?” Ronna Ledesma (ronna_ledesma@yahoo.com.ph)
Reflection: God will demand more from the one who has been entrusted with much.
Father, grant me wisdom and temperance in all my dealings with the people You’ve placed under me.
St. Monica, pray for us.
