I have to be faithful.
Though I’m not doing exactly the type of work that I want to be doing,
though I feel that the job responsibilities I’ve been given are “beneath me,”
though my current work doesn’t fully utilize my unique gifts, talents and abilities…
I have to faithful.
Because my current opportunity is a test.
A test of my character.
A test of my motivations.
A test of my faithfulness.
And how do I know this to be true?
Because over 2,000 years ago, Jesus Christ, made it very clear through the following timeless truth:
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
Simply stated: If I can be trusted with little, I will be trusted with much.
My faithfulness in my current opportunities will determine the potential for my future opportunities. And as much as I hate to admit it, these are the facts.
So instead of being consumed and concerned with all that I do not yet have, I must be concentrated on being a better steward of all that I have already been given.
I just wish it was a little easier done than said.
