It's In The Small Things
Posted: Monday, April 13
Verse of the day:
If you are faithful in little things, you will be faithful in large ones. But if you are dishonest in little things, you won’t be honest with greater responsibilities. (Luke 16:10)
How do you determine how much responsibility you give to someone? For most of us we would answer that we would look at their past track record. How have they handled past responsibility? Have they been faithful to complete past tasks they have been given? Do they get overwhelmed easily and give up? If we find that they have not done well in the past with responsibility we won’t be inclined to trust them with more responsibility. Any good manager makes promotion recommendations based on this.
God is the best manager and teaches us this principle. There is much work to be done in His Kingdom and He wants to give each of us more to do. However if we are not faithful in the little things that He has given us we can’t be trusted with larger things. The more faithful we become with the little things that God has entrusted us with the more He will trust us with in the future.
