What instances have you abused your authority? - Daily Bible Reflections August 27,2015


ABUSING AUTHORITY
 
“Who, then, is the faithful and prudent servant, whom the master has put in charge of his household...?” – Matthew 24:45
 
       While I was pregnant, reports of a nanny physically abusing her ward caught on video were being shown on the news. I always changed the channel because I couldn’t bear to watch it. Thinking of any child being mistreated was too painful, and too stressful, especially for an expectant mom.
       It broke my heart to imagine entrusting my precious child to someone who would inflict pain, thinking nobody would find out, abusing the authority entrusted to her.
    God has given us authority over all creation. We break His heart whenever we abuse this authority. We break His heart when we are reckless in our roles as stewards. We break His heart when we hurt others.
       Perhaps if we see how our actions hurt our loving God, we might strive to be more faithful to Him. Kitty D. Ferreria (kittydulay@yahoo.com)
