Many people have come up with various theories trying to explain the most intrinsic aspects of our daily life but it is very disappointing that their efforts have all yielded to nothing. There are questions in ones life that can not be answered no matter how wise you are and the funniest thing is that there is nothing new under the sun…Ecc1:9. How stupid that makes us then? That after more than six thousand years we still can not explain certain mysteries and our desperation still exceeds our wisdom.
There are two people in a car, one dies of an accident the other lives, why? We say he is lucky. Ten women go to deliver, seven survive, we call it luck? An earthquake rocks a region rendering hundreds lifeless and thousands homeless, we call it a bad calamity. They say even the stiff necked leopard knows the environment around it. For how long shall we still persist in our arrogance? For the times of ignorance God overlooked but now He commands all men everywhere to repent. Acts 17:30
It is a high time that we all realize that life is more than just being born, learning, getting a good job, starting a family and dying somewhere along the line. Though to some accountability is one word that has never found some real application in their lives but it sure shall find some meaning in our lives soon for behold I am coming soon Rev. 22:12 And am not just talking about anyone here, its He who is and who was and who is to come Rev. 1:8 And the worst part is that on the day of judgment men will render account for every careless word they utter Matt 12:36. And there is more I have come that they may have life, and have it an abundance John 10:10. This therefore means that contrary to the ‘gospel’ that Christianity limits one to the real pleasures of life, it as matter of fact assures that very thing…LIFE. Christianity is all about living and about living to the fullness of life.
Therefore our accountability before our creator is not only about our speech but every gift he has given us. A gift from the oxford dictionary is a thing given willingly without payment. This then in the broader perspective means that anything around you that you call yours-children, property, air, life, body- you shall be called to account for. Well let us start with the pretty obvious-you. Thank God for parents that the soul that sins shall die. The son shall not suffer for the iniquity of the father nor do the fathers suffer for the iniquity of the son. Ezek 18:20.
This calls for responsibility on our part, and from the study of management, we learn that responsibility goes hand in hand with authority. We then have been given the authority for I call heaven and earth to witness against you this day, that I have set before you life and death Deut. 30:19 Choose this day whom you will serve…Joshua 24:15
God has given us responsibility and authority and as the servants were called upon by their master to account for there talents, so shall we. Matt 25:14-30
