To whom much is given

"From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked."
- Luke 12:48

 These words have been resonating in my brain for the last two days.
I know that I don't have much to complain about. My basic human needs are more than just "met". And yet my prayers seem to be filled with more "Please Lord, I want...."   than "Thank you, Lord" . 


Sometimes, God wants us to be faithful in investing our time, talent, passion and money in what he has already given us. Even if our wants seem justifiable, maybe* God is looking to see if we have been good managers of what he already has blessed us with before he doles out more! 

maybe* because that's what I heard regarding one situation. Can't be the same for everyone!
