Devotional Tea 35: Faithful in the Little Things

Scripture: Luke 16:10 (KJV)

He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much.

Don't let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do. (John Wooden)
The important things in life are not the things we cannot do. They are the things we can do. Life’s important questions include, “how faithful are we in those things we can do? Are we doing our best in them? Are we maximizing the opportunities they avail us?” Life’s important questions do not center on the things we cannot do. They center on the things we can do. Our faithfulness in the things we can do is what opens new and better opportunities for us, giving us new enablement, around the things we hitherto could not do.

Life is not about how many things we can, or cannot do. Rather, it is about our faithfulness in the little we can do. It is about doing the little with excellence. Faithfulness in the little is what will guarantee faithfulness in the much. If you cannot handle the little, who will give you the much you are looking for?

Further Reading: Matthew 25:14-30; Romans 12:3-8; 1 Corinthians 12; 2 Corinthians 4:7.

Prayer: Lord, help me not to despise that which you have endowed me with. Help me see that not is little, except the way I treat it. Help me magnify that which is in my hands, that you might be glorified in and through this earthen vessel of mine.

Devotional Tea 34: Faith Precedes Feelings
Devotional Tea 36: Let God In

Be faithful in the little things, for in them our strength lies. To the good God nothing is little, because He is so great and we are so small. (Mother Teresa)
