Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord
Many of us hesitate and wait for circumstances to be perfect before we will commit to serve. To delay is to disobey.
When we undertake what God asks us to do, He makes it count. No matter how difficult it might be to accomplish the task He has assigned, no matter how few stand beside us, no matter where He sends, no matter how long it might take – be faithful to respond to His prompting.
Do not despise the small beginnings or neglect the details others never see. Even when we labor in obscurity, our Heavenly Father notices and honors our obedience. When we offer our best – even if only a few fish and loaves – He magnifies and makes it much.
If He calls you to the nursery, nurture the upcoming generation of Jesus lovers! If He sends you to the boardroom, lead with integrity. If He calls you to mop floors, clean with care. When you answer the higher call, your obedience blesses others.
We are responsible to respond and invest the talents that He gives us. When we do little things well – faithful over the few – He will reward us by promoting us to the greater things. It all counts in His kingdom.
May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. Sink your heart and hands into the work of the Master until He one day welcomes you into the joy of the Lord. He is worthy!
