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. Luke 12:48 (ESV)
Those who have lived in a first-world country, who have had access to Bibles, Bible teaching, history, education, freedom of expression, radio, television, internet, and so on, are not entitled,but responsible.
They are responsible to use their assets in a way that the one who gave them the asset will be able to declare, “Well done.” They are responsible to use whatever they have been given to expand the Kingdom, not expand their kingdom.
It is hard for the rich to love God, just as it is hard for the poor to not envy the rich.
What is important in life is available to all, regardless of their status. All can enjoy God and enjoy each other. All can do as God has commanded.
First-world countries may be full of rich fools who first calculate what’s in it for them, while forgetting that they do not determine what happens tomorrow, and why they were entrusted with the much they enjoy.
