Have you ever read a stewardship parable (like the Parable of the Minas) and it made you feel guilty? Instead of identifying with the good stewards, you found yourself having more in common with the bad ones – you know, the ones that were called wicked and were punished severely.

We’re stressed. We’re worried. We’re proud. We’re self-sufficient. We’re lazy. We’re too busy.
And we may start to think we’ll never change. What’s the point in trying?
