We Don't All Fly the Plane

Entrusted. The very concept implies that those receiving the trust did not choose it themselves, but that God has selected them. I really do hate to write 'against' something, but today my "holy discontent" is the notion that certain roles in serving God are more needed than others, or are more important. Really? Hmmmm, check out 1 Corinthians 12 for a great body-part analogy.

Talked with an airline pilot the other day. I'm pretty sure he didn't build the planes he flies, or figure out how to shape a wing to get many tons of metal and people in the air in the first place. I'm guessing he doesn't book seats, or load luggage, or fuel the jet, or control air traffic. But, me flying from point A to point B wouldn't happen without all that, and much more. In each role is a person who has been entrusted with a task, and all their tasks are different.

The flip side is, we've all been entrusted with, well, quite a lot, but not identically. So, what relationships, dreams, passions, talents, education, and (yes) money has the master entrusted to me, and to you? And what are we doing with them?

Shout out to all who came over for the voice recordings. Your brief stint in the closet will help others know they, too, have been entrusted with something for God's purposes.
