Stewards, not owners
Our greed and vanity may drive us to attach our identity onto some things in such a way that we fool ourselves that the things, positions, and recognitions are what define us.
Of things, we are stewards, not owners.
Of positions, we are responsible, not privileged.
Of recognitions, we are advocates, not gods.
We help things happen because alone, our power is insufficient. And the more we give and lose our egos, the more we flourish and achieve who we are meant to be.
Luke 12:13-21. The Parable of the Rich Fool
