Have you ever loaned out a tool, your car, or serving platter only to find the item broken, dented, or chipped when it was returned? This is a reflection of the stewardship of the other person. If you think about it, God has made us stewards too. He blesses us with food, shelter, and even relationships. One day we will have to account for the things God blessed us with. Are you the person who will return an item in better condition than when you received it?
Again, the Kingdom of Heaven can be illustrated by the story of a man going on a long trip. He called together his servants and entrusted his money to them while he was gone.
~ Matthew 25:14.[NLT]
