I have always been reminding myself and my husband about this all the time … ‘be faithful in little things”. This was also the lesson we have learned from today’s preaching.
Most of us are so eager to desire the things that are big, things that are great, things that are enormous. Even to the simple sharing of pizza slices, we tend to desire to have the biggest slice. That is most of the time our nature as a person. Being faithful in little things is being able to appreciate everything God has given us. We are so easily tempted to desire those things we don’t have and end up not appreciating all the blessings God has given us. We need to be grateful for all the things God has given us. Before God will give us the big things in life, he first sets our heart. That is why God always starts with little things to prepare our hearts for greater things. So don’t despair with the little things you have right now. Learn to appreciate all these things and use it all for God’s glory.
“He who is faithful in what is least is faithful also in much;and he who is unjust in what is least is unjust also in much.” (Luke 16:10)
