“One who is faithful in a very little is also faithful in much, and one who is dishonest in a very little is also dishonest in much. If then you have not been faithful in the unrighteous wealth, who will entrust to you the true riches?”
It doesn’t seem like that long ago that my parents sent me off to college at Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene, Texas. I met several friends my first year who aspired to be pastors. Many of them talked about how they’d love to have a nice big church and a powerful ministry to thousands.
But there were some of these guys who had big visions for ministry, but didn’t want to be faithful with the little they had. On manySunday mornings, they were the ones who slept through church. They weren’t actively involved in any kind of ministry. It seemed like they wanted all the benefits of being a great pastor without putting in any of the work.
It’s not surprising then that today, I never hear about any of those guys. That’s because the biblical adage is true that whoever is faithful with a little will be faithful with much. That’s why God will rarely entrust much to those whom aren’t first faithful with the little He gives them.
Whether in your career, at home, or in ministry, be faithful with the little you have now. Doing so will prepare you to be faithful in abundance if God chooses to bless you. Practice faithfulness in the small things today for the big things tomorrow!
BE FAITHFUL WITH A LITTLE TODAY TO PREPARE YOUSELF FOR ABUNDANCE TOMORROW!
