Responsibility: Showing you can be trusted with what is expected of you
“Suppose you can be trusted with something very little. Then you can also be trusted with something very large.” Luke 16:10 NIrV
The psalmist wrote, “The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it,” (NIrV). God is the author of creation, and God has entrusted us to care for and cultivate it. We do that by taking responsibility. From the work we need to accomplish to people we meet to the words we use; life is filled with moments where we can decide to reflect God’s character, take responsibility, and use what we have wisely. When we follow through and do what needs to be done, we can point others to Jesus, the One who took the ultimate responsibility for us and made it possible for us to be with God forever.
Parable of the Bags of Gold – Matthew 25:14-30
