Obedience – Part 5

He who is faithful in what is least is faithful also in much; and he who is unjust in what is least is unjust also in much.

Luke 16:10

Obedience Test – Question 5:

Have you ever had to be reminded to do little tasks?

Obedience is doing little commands as well as big ones.  (No excuses, no frustrations, no reactions, no justifications)

Do you need to be reminded to read your Bible, pray, tithe, witness, or help others?  A person who neglects little commands will usually overlook important details which make the difference between success and failure in a project or in a life.  They will also tend to be careless in their thinking, personal disciplines, appearance, speech, or actions.  The principle that Jesus gave is very true:  “He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much (Luke 16:10).  On the other hand, he that is unfaithful in little, will be unfaithful in much.

I think that many times we get impatient “waiting” for God to give us a “big job”.  Maybe, He’s not giving us a “big job” because we are sorely lacking faithfulness in the “little jobs”.

If we start the day without seeking Him first, we are failing in a “little job”.  If we make decisions without praying over them, we are failing in a “little job”.  If we are too busy to see a person’s need, and to fill that need, we are failing in a “little job”.  

So, it’s crucial to pay attention to the little details.  You shouldn’t have to be reminded of these “little tasks”, they should be a daily part of your life, every day!
