TFTD: Be faithful over the few things
Matthew 25:23 (NIV)
23 “His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’
Throughout our lifetime, we will make several requests to God. There will be times when we pray for a better relationship, a spouse if we are single, a promotion on our job, to complete an advanced degree, to give birth to a healthy child and the list goes on. Sometimes we can become so consumed with asking for more before we are faithful over the few things God has already blessed us with.
How can God bless you with a mate if you haven’t been faithful in your singleness? How can God promote you in your career if you abuse your current position? How can God help you complete an advanced degree if you can’t manage the simple task He has before you? How can God bless you with more when you neglect the little things? God wants to see how you will take care of things you currently have before He can advance you in life and in the kingdom.
Ask yourself, “Have I been faithful over the few things?” Take a moment to really assess how you treat the people God has blessed you with. Now, look at how you speak of the blessings God has given you. Do you curse your blessings with complaints? Do you neglect your blessings by being slothful or negative?
I encourage you to cherish the season you are in. I know life is not easy and things may even appear unfair, but don’t block your blessings because of a bad attitude. Your upgrade to a better life could be contingent upon how you handle your current situation. It’s time to be faithful over the few things!
Have a blessed weekend!
