Read Luke 16 in your Bible. Or you can also read it here.
“Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much.” – Luke 16:10
This verse reminds me to be a good steward. Often when we hear this phrase, it is in reference to money. But I think we should aim to be good stewards of more than money. We can be good stewards of our time, our relationships, our health, our resources, our talents, and so much more. We have countless opportunities to show God that we can be trusted with the things He places into our care.
Colossians 3:17 says, “And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” This is such a great verse to keep in mind on a daily basis. Whatever task we are doing, whether at work, at home, or anywhere else – if we do it for Jesus, we will do our best. We will show God that we are faithful and can be trusted with little or with much.
Dr. Charles Stanley puts it this way, “Faithfulness in the small assignments the Lord gives us qualifies us for the opportunity to serve in greater and more influential ways. Be obedient and faithful where God plants you and watch what awesome things He does through your life.”
Let us take time today to evaluate different areas of our lives. Are we being good stewards? Are we showing God that we can be trusted with little and with much? If not, how can we make changes to show God that we are faithful and taking good care of the resources He has given us?
If you are also participating in the Gratitude Challenge, today is day 87 of 100. I hope the challenge has helped you to see God’s goodness in your life.
