Luke 16:10-13 – 10 “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. 11 Therefore if you have not been faithful in the use of unrighteous wealth, who will entrust the true riches to you? 12 And if you have not been faithful in the use of that which is another’s, who will give you that which is your own? 13 No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and wealth.”
Recently, I visited a pastor friend of mine at his church to pray over his building and his ministry. As I toured the facility with him, he explained to me all of the work and love that has gone into that building. The church was built in the 1930’s and as you can imagine, has required much repair and upkeep. As my friend talked, I could hear the love he had for that building. Interestingly, listening to him, today’s passage came to mind. My friend has been faithful with the little that many other pastors or people would have discarded. Because of his care for this facility, they have created a beautiful sanctuary where people can come and meet Jesus.
As you read this today, you too may be struggling with the “little” you have been given. You don’t have the job others have. You don’t have the finances or home that others have. You might not even have the spouse/family that others have. Remember what Luke tells us today — “10 “He who is faithful in a very little thing is faithful also in much;“. Rather than focus on what you don’t have, commit your efforts, time and resources caring for what the Lord has already given you. Through love, commitment and care, the Lord can take something “little” in your life and make something beautiful and wonderful that will honor Him.
I pray for blessing today for you on your Journey!
