Faithfulness In Little Things

Key Verse

“Howbeit there was no reckoning made with them of the money that was delivered unto their hand, because they dealt faithfully” (2 Kings 22:7).

TEXT — 2 Kings 22:1-7


It was Dr. F. B. Meyer who said, “Do not waste your time waiting and longing for large opportunities, which may never come. But faithfully handle the little things that are always claiming your attention”.

The key word in today’s passage is faithfulness. The text contains an account of Josiah’s righteous reign in Judah. In the eighteenth year of his reign, he sent his servants to the temple to Hilkiah the high priest to collect and deliver the proceeds from the various offerings given at the temple to carpenters and builders for the maintenance of the temple. There was no reckoning made with these workmen because they dealt faithfully.

God does not reward title or position, but faithfulness. It is not how big or how challenging your task is; but how faithful you are in executing it. The workmen who were charged with the task of maintaining the temple were not priests or Levites in the temple. They did not require rocket engineering or a degree from higher institutions of learning to carry out their simple functions. They were commended for utilizing the funds judiciously. This is what God expects from Christians who serve in whatever capacity in government or the private sector; and from believers who do business.

We must account for all the funds and other resources committed into our hands in granular details. We must be patiently faithful, diligently honest and uprightly pursue our businesses and careers without cutting corners, seeking to take advantage of some loopholes in the system. As we are faithful in the little things we do now, God would bless us with enduring riches that will not bring sorrows or heartaches.

Thought for the day

Faithfulness in little things brings big breakthroughs from God.
