Faith In Little Things
“No! For unless you are honest in small matters, you won’t be in large ones. If you cheat even a little, you won’t be honest with greater responsibilities. 11 And if you are untrustworthy about worldly wealth, who will trust you with the true riches of heaven?” (Luke 16:10-11)
We are often prone to assume that the mundane actions of daily life have no spiritual significance and offer no place for the application of our Faith. But scripture actually teaches the opposite. It is only after we have successfully applied our Faith in the simple, material areas of life that God will promote us to higher spiritual responsibilities.
Jesus Himself laid down the principle in the above scripture. Only after we have made our Faith work in the ‘very little Things’ and in the area of money, will God entrust to us the greater responsibilities and the True Spiritual Riches. Therefore, in examining how we can work out our Faith in daily living, we will consider two practical, down to earth areas, Food and Finance.
When a believer who has learned to apply His Faith in two areas, he is likely to be leading a successful Christian life. On the other hand, if a person has not brought these basic areas under God’s control, it is usually an indication that his whole life needs to be adjusted. So again, remember that Faith is the only basis for Righteous living.
