faithful with a little

On my recent trip to Texas I was able to attend Gateway Church with several members of our Raceway Ministry team.  Gateway is where Robert Morris, author of The Blessed Life, is pastor.  Many of his messages that I have heard via TV, podcasts and at conferences have blessed me big time.

Morris talked about he fact that Scripture understanding, order and strength.  By living by the Word of God, by following the principles God gives us we will be blessed and be blessed big time.

Here is a blog post Robert Morris shared:

The Bible says that we must be faithful with a little before we will be entrusted with much. If you have just a little bit of money, you are a perfect candidate for blessing because if you will be faithful with that little, God will give you more.

God is looking for people He can entrust with much. He also knows that a person who is unjust with a little will be unjust with more as well. Christians who will cheat with a little won’t suddenly become faithful if they are given a lot. That is why Jesus says, “Therefore if you have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches? And if you have not been faithful in what is another man’s, who will give you what is your own?” (Luke 16:11-12).

What I’m trying to help you see is that it is not how much you have that matters – it is whose it is.

If we belong to God, then it’s His money, not ours. That is why Jesus tells me I need to be faithful with what is someone else’s. It’s not mine; it’s His. And each new day brings a test of my stewardship.

May our lives demonstrate what being faithful is.  Whether God blesses us now or in the future, His unending faithfulness to us is enough for us to worship Him through the way we live. 

Like Morris wrote if we only have a little we are great candidates for the blessings of God.  Begin now being faithful with what God has given you!

Luke 16:10  NASB
He who is faithful in a very little thing is faithful also in much; and he who is unrighteous in a very little thing is unrighteous also in much.

The godly walk with integrity; blessed are their children who follow them.
