“Judgment is stern for the exalted for the lowly may be pardoned out of mercy but the mighty shall be mightily put to the test …for those in power a rigorous scrutiny impends.”
A favorite student dropped into the office to chat about his fall
break service trip to Appalacia. He has never before thought of
himself as rich or privileged.
It’s hard for most of us who live modest lives (by American
standards) to realize that we are more privileged than all but the
richest people in Biblical times. In all likelihood, most of us
own more things than even King Solomon. Even if we don’t think
of ourselves as rich or powerful, we are, especially in comparison
with the millions who go to bed hungry, sleep in hovels and lack
basic medical care. God will surely hold us accountable for how
well we have used our good fortune to aid others.
