Probably, you’ve heard the saying, “He who has been faithful with little will be faithful with much.”
The bible says it this way:
“Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much. (Luke 16:10 NIV)
I’m going to have to rant a bit now.
Faithful does not me just showing up, with your bad attitude, your hateful spirit. Faithful does not me showing up unprepared, no heart, no prayer. Faithful does not mean thinking only of ourselves, only about what I can tolerate.
I’ve seen it. I’ve done it. Coming to lead worship without practicing. Leading a bible study without preparing. Coming to work speaking only about how I hate this place , how much I hate my job. Leading a program, a department without praying for my people, my staff, my customers. I walk in wanting to protect myself, wanting to not overwork myself, wanting to guard against criticism failure.
I have not been faithful.
I want to be. I think you want to be, too. Let’s do it differently this week. Pray differently, prepare, practice, walk differently. Live like God is living in you, in me.
