“We are not owners, we are stewards.”

Arthur Brisbane, whose syndicated column appeared years ago in hundreds of daily newspapers, had this sharp observation: 'The greatest loss to the human race has not been caused by floods or by fire, nor by epidemics which have spread diseases over vast areas and with the sickle of death mowed down millions, nor by earthquakes and tropical storms, nor by record-breaking crashes on Wall Street...the greatest loss has been in the buried talents of God's people.
