ABUNDANCE - RESPONSIBILITY

2Cor.8:13 "Our desire is not that others might be relieved while you are hard pressed, but that there might be equality.
14 At the present time your plenty will supply what they need, so that in turn their plenty will supply what you need. Then there will be equality,
15 as it is written: 'He who gathered much did not have too much, and he who gathered little did not have too little.'" (NIV)

************

Has God blessed you with abundance,
Many talents…to you entrust;
Was it just to store up,
To amass…rust, and turn to dust?

Or did He bless you,
That you might…in return;
Be a blessing to others,
‘Tis a lesson we all need to learn.

For with each and every talent,
Each blessing in disguise;
Also comes responsibility,
We soon…..realize.

To some…it is great wealth,
To others…our ability;
A good steward we must be,
Of all He has given…freely.

Using sound judgment…surely,
Praying for His guidance;
Using wisely what He’s given,
In obedience…not over-indulgence.

Don’t take it lightly,
When you are showered with a blessing;
For it’s what we do with it,
In the final ending.

Is mankind made alittle better,
By the gift we have received;
Has it helped someone along the way,
To dare to hope…to believe?

Or have we kept it to ourselves,
For me…myself…and I;
Can I take it with me when I go,
All the things that I did buy?

I think not…and so do you,
So, why not pass it on;
That others’ lives be made much richer,
Even after we are gone?

A gift that keeps on giving,
Is the one we’ve given away;
Not clutching it to our bosom,
But, letting it go…today.

See how big your blessing grows,
As you pass it on to others;
This is our responsibility,
A helping hand to our sisters…to our brothers.
