If you are faithful in little things, you will be faithful in large ones. But if you are dishonest in little things, you won’t be honest with greater responsibilities. And if you are untrustworthy about worldly wealth, who will trust you with the true riches of heaven?
To read today’s portion of scripture, you can purchase The One Year Bible or find the following in your Bible:
I heard a story once about a young man driving to a job interview who spies a businesswoman standing on the side of the road, looking down at her BMW’s blown tire. He pulls over and fixes the tire for her. The two part, only to meet up again when the young man is ushered in for his interview. There she is, and she’s the CEO of the company. He gets the job.
You may think no one notices every piece of toast you butter for the kids’ breakfast, or every diaper you change, or every time you wipe the counters in the office bathroom just because you’re there, and the counter is wet, and you figure you may as well be the one to take care of it — but you’d be wrong about that. Someone sees. And He’ll remember every instance where you showed faithfulness in those little things.
Life is a testing ground. Every day we get to start over and do better. So today, when one of those small, seemingly insignificant, unnoticed tasks come your way, do it anyway — and trust that heaven is watching. One day in a place much better than this, you’ll be entrusted with tasks far grander.
