This is one of my favorite bible verses. With all the blessings I’ve had in my life, I repeat it consistently, to remember. I’m sometimes embarrassed when I think back on the things a younger me would get upset about. But I guess that’s life. The last few years have more than reminded me of what’s important.
Many have probably heard the quote, “to whom much is given, much is required.” Well, here is the verse from which it originates:
“But the one who did not know, and did what deserved a beating, will receive a light beating. Everyone to whom much was given, of him much will be required, and from him to whom they entrusted much, they will demand the more.”
