Luke 16:10 – 12 – ‘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. So if you have not been trustworthy in handling worldly wealth, who will trust you with true riches? And if you have not been trustworthy with someone else’s property, who will give you property of your own?’
Are you trustworthy? Would people seek you out to look after their property, their money or their secrets?
God’s word clearly states that if we are asked to look after something small and we do a great job of this, then likewise we will with something great. If however we are careless with the small things – perhaps resentful even that they are so small – then we will not be trusted with the big things.
What is the big thing to you? Is it some land, a business idea, a family of your own or something else? Whenever you have an opportunity to show that you’re trustworthy, take it! Who knows what God is preparing you for when He provides these chances to show you are trustworthy with the little things?
As you develop as a wealthy Christian, you will find more and more things entrusted to you. Perhaps this will be finances, employees, more clients or something else. Whatever it is, be sure to keep an attitude of being a good steward with all that is put under your care. This worldly wealth could lead you to bringing others to a saving knowledge of Christ! Be trustworthy.
