Do you run the risk of becoming a modern day Capernaum? In Jesus' day, Capernaum was a great city. It was prosperous and popular and it was the site where many of His greatest works were done. However, the people of Capernaum had the freedom to accept or reject the Light that shown in their streets. Their choice was to ignore and neglect the Savior in their midst and the result was a sentence of judgment that none of us would want. Every Christian with a free will can learn from this. It is a lesson of accountability: accountability for each of the many gifts, blessings, talents, opportunities, resources and teachings God has invested in us. There is still time for us to reevaluate: "What have we been given?" "What are we to do with it?"
