It’s not what we have that counts. It’s how we use what we have that is the issue. We are in a position of trust. Therefore we must use our resources to advance the cause of Christ. We are to make the most of the ability, the talents, the opportunities, the resources that God has given to us.
The world of science immediately recognizes the name of Stephen Hocking. This intellectual genius holds a prestigious office at Oxford University. One of his most notable accomplishments is the development of “THE BLACK HOLE” theory.
Years ago, Stephen Hocking was stricken with the feared Lou Gehrig’s Disease which causes a deteriorating of bodily function. It is a debilitating neuromuscular disease which is harsh and cruel in its effect upon the body. Hocking’s condition is so severe that he is practically motionless. Only his eyes glance about. Yet Hocking is not to be dejected. He continues to work – by using one finger on a computer – his last remaining motor function. Hocking utilizes what he has. How about you?
