The Heavier Judgment
When a man is given a job to do, he becomes responsible not only to wear the associated title but also, and more importantly, for the performance of the job’s duties. The greater the level of responsibility accepted, the greater is the consequence of failure. At the Twelfth of Luke, the Savior taught that much is required of him unto whom much is given and more is asked of those unto whom much is committed. Further, those that knew what was expected of them, and neither did the work nor prepared to do so, would suffer a greater penalty. With this in mind, it is well to consider that, at James Three, we are instructed that not many of the brethren should be teachers, for these receive the heavier judgment.
