The master said, ‘Well done, my good and faithful servant. You have been faithful in handling this small amount, so now I will give you many more responsibilities. Let’s celebrate together!’ - Matthew 25:21
He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much. - Luke 16:10
We are often thinking of where we want to be in the future and who we want to be in the future. We think so much about the future that we can often miss the present and what God has entrusted to us right now, in this very moment. Often times we neglect the tasks God has given us now because we think what He will entrust to us in the future is going to be so much better. Truth is, God promotes those who are faithful and excellent in what they have already been given. For you, this may be a job you naturally aren’t passionate about or maybe you’re at the bottom of the totem pole in a company you love or maybe you’re a stay-at-home mom with desires to be involved in other ventures. The key to more influence and greater responsibility is to focus whole-heartedly on what God has given you NOW. Be present, excellent, passionate, and diligent in the small tasks. A good employer notices the excellent work of their employees and rewards them accordingly. How much more then will God, who is our loving Father, notice our diligent and excellent work and reward us accordingly. Put it to the test! Begin to work as unto the Lord in every task you have already been given and watch how God blesses you in it.
So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honor.” - 1 Peter 5:6
