“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!’ Matthew 25:21
Everyday we have a responsibility to do what we are called to do. To be faithful over what we have in our hands. Not to merely have the same amount we began with when we started – but to increase what God has entrusted us with. No need to look at what your neighbor has been entrusted with, because God has given you more than enough for your assignment.
Do we hold it and keep it to ourselves? Do we honor what we have been given and double or triple it? The Scripture reminds us that if we are faithful over little he will entrust us with more. We have to show God that we have a high regard and appreciation for every thing we have at our disposal.
We often ask God for more when we wants to see how faithful we are over our little. In order to have more money – one must learn responsibility over giving God our first through tithing – giving and helping others and saving. Giving increases – keeping decrease. God calls us to be givers and to do so with a joyful heart.
So what do you have in your hand? To get increase, use what you have to help the world. This doesn’t have to mean money only – could someone benefit from giving of your time? Challenge yourself to never take for granted your blessing. Be thankful for all things. Your spouse needs your faithfulness – show love even when you don’t feel like it. Your children – or even your job. What can you do to show your faithfulness. Getting to work on time and giving it your all.
Excellence is driven by our faithfulness. To be excellent with our families, our business and even our friendships we have learn this principle of faithfulness. God is always faithful – he is the greatest example on how we should live our lives. He is faithful to his promises – his love and grace. He takes care of us with such excellence – how marvelous are the works of his hands.
We can become more faithful by being faithful over our little. When we grasp that – our little forms into much.
