Faithful in Little Things

Inspiration MinistriesBy Inspiration Ministries2 Minutes

How do we grow spiritually? How can we become more mature as Believers? How can we receive more of God’s blessings?

It can be easy to think we just need to concentrate on spiritual things, assuming that the practical things of our daily lives are not important. Yet Jesus made it clear that practical things are critical for our spiritual lives.

Why is this? Because our faithfulness in little things demonstrates the true condition of our heart.

Jesus taught that God looks for people who are honest and responsible, not only with the projects that get attention but also ones that seem insignificant. He said we need to be “faithful in small matters.” If we are faithful in things which seem small, we demonstrate our true character. We display habits we also will apply to projects with greater visibility and importance.

If we seek excellence and do our best in small matters, we demonstrate that we are committed to excellence in everything we do, not just the things that people notice.

Do you want greater spiritual riches? Do you want to be fruitful in God’s Kingdom? Seek to foster a spirit of responsibility and excellence, starting with projects that seem small and interaction with people who seem to have little influence. Cultivate these attitudes in every project, big or small. Pursue excellence with every person and in every situation.

Remember: God is interested in your heart. Before He will give you the true riches and abundance of His Kingdom, He wants to see if you are trustworthy.

Make it your prayer to be faithful and honest in everything you do today, even in small, practical situations. Strive for excellence even when no one seems to be looking. God sees and will reward your faithfulness.
