“He who is faithful in a very little thing is faithful also in much; and he who is unrighteous in a very little thing is unrighteous also in much.”
Luke 16:10 (NASB)
Do you ever feel like you’re on the brink of something? Like, you can sense that Lord is about to open a door for you and your new chapter is about to begin? I’m right there and I’ve been praying like crazy about it.
Yesterday, I was talking to God about this, and I asked Him what He wants me to do in anticipation. “How can I prepare, Lord? What do I do? “Almost immediately, Luke 16:10 came to mind. It was very clear – “be faithful in the small things.”
Why would the Lord open a new and exciting door for me with big responsibilities and tasks if I’m not patient with my teething baby? Or quick to wrath with the driver in front of me? Or not kind and respectful to my husband, my partner in life?
If we want to be used in mighty ways for God’s Kingdom, we must remember to be faithful in the little things. That’s how we let the Lord shine. Because really, He’s the one doing all the work anyway. We just get to be a part of it.
