Skeletons in the closet…

1 Peter 4:10-11  As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace:  whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies—in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ.

Whatever you have is just seed money to be plowed into God’s kingdom. What you sow you will reap, and what you hoard will pop up at the Bēma Seat judgment like a rotten skeleton of wasted chances, to accuse you.

On the other hand, whatever you invest in the kingdom will be waiting for you when you get there, along with the commendation that we all crave: “Well done good servant!”
