Stewardship: Jaguar XK R
It sits as if ready to pounce. It's a 2008 Jaguar XK R with a 420 hp V-8 that has a fully loaded price tag of $97,000. I also have the key to it. One of our members on the mission trip to Argentina has a job that requires him to drive and evaluate new cars every 2 weeks. This is the finest car I've ever seen him drive and he left me the keys in case we needed to move it. But here's the hitch: I'm not allowed to drive it. Only he is insured and given permission to drive it and he is 4,000 miles away in Argentina. I am stewarding these keys for emergency use only. Would a trip to Ventura Target be considered an emergency? I really need some new toothpaste! Probably not.
Stewarding a car like this is not about my pleasure in driving, but honoring the owner's plans for its use. Therefore it sits and stares at me!
