Thought for the Day – Faithful in Everything

I know that I struggle with being faithful in everything, especially the little things. I struggle to find the motivation to do math and science, and to do the chores that I really hate. We are often more willing to do the big things, because they get more notice, while the little, menial tasks often go unnoticed and unrewarded. But we must remember that we should not look for rewards or applause from humans, because we should seek God’s approval first. We often look at a task with the thought: “What will I get out of it?” When our thoughts should be: “How can I glorify God and edify others through it.” We must learn to be faithful in everything, even in the things that seem unimportant. You never know what doing that little task might do for another person. It could brighten someone’s day, help someone in need, or even teach you something. So remember to be faithful in everything today.

“He who is faithful in a very little thing is faithful also in much; and who who is unrighteous in a very little thing  is unrighteous also in much.” Luke 16:10
