Diligence in the Small Things

Each and every one of us has a God-given purpose as well as ‘tasks’ presented to each of us as individuals. These ‘tasks’ are meant both to better you and to give evidence of your life following Christ. They may be as many different things as there are people since God works with each of us through our own personal lives and our own demons, but include tasks such as diligently raising up our children to be godly and respectful, dedicating ourselves more diligently to time in prayer and the word, working with God to clean up a particular sin in our lives/hearts. If we cannot get a handle on these tasks, work toward them, and show improvement, if we give them up because it is too difficult or tedious, then how can we expect to be able to take bigger steps forward into our purpose or accept more responsible roles within the church or the kingdom? We can’t. It would overwhelm us rather than bless us and be a hinderance to ourselves and to those we are supposed to help. We must be diligent with the little things if we are to be trusted with the bigger ones.

“‘For to everyone who has, more will be given, and he will have abundance;”

‭‭Matthew‬ ‭25:29‬a

““If you are faithful in little things, you will be faithful in large ones. But if you are dishonest in little things, you won’t be honest with greater responsibilities.”

‭‭Luke‬ ‭16:10‬
