You were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things.
Recommended Reading: Matthew 25:14-23
Booker T. Washington said, “Success in life is founded upon attention to the small things rather than to the large things; to the everyday things nearest to us rather than to the things that are remote and uncommon.”1
The Lord assigns our daily tasks, and sometimes they’re as simple as washing a child’s face, picking up a piece of litter, showing up at a worship service, or taking chicken soup to a sick friend. Small acts of kindness catch the attention of heaven, and faithfulness in small things pleases the Lord. Somehow in His providence, the accumulation of small things, done faithfully, becomes a pathway of purpose and fulfillment in life.
In the middle of the mundane routines of the week, it can be difficult to remain faithful in our responsibilities. Yet God often uses our faithfulness in these small tasks to prepare us for bigger ones. Thank God today that He is always preparing you for what He has in store for you next. As the Lord sees us faithful in the small, He will assign more work to be rendered with joy and done for His glory.
Faithfulness is faithfulness, on whatsoever scale it be set forth!
