Re: Verse reading–Deuteronomy 8:1-20; Matthew 25:1-46 (Day Three) 
“I will put you in charge of many things.”  It’s easy to read this portion of scripture as if it says, “You can now take it easy, because you’ve arrived.”  But we don’t steward resources in order to get rewarded with a life in which we can waste resources.  We steward resources because are made in God’s image.  God is the maker of all things, and he stewards the things he has made.  When we steward what we have been given by honoring God and doing good to others, we live true to that image in which we are made.  We then rise to the high calling of living like God lives.
