Trusted?

"Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much" (Luke 16:10).

Jesus nails it!  So many people have great desire for the big things in life, yet they struggle deeply in their responsibility of what they do have now.  Jesus is saying that how you handle the little we do have now is a fairly accurate indicator as to how more would be handled later.

With this idea in mind, what does that say about you?  It's important to realize that every little thing in regards to who you are and what you do matters.  It really does matter.  How you handle hwere you are now is key as to whether or not God can trust you with even more.  Your daily goal and committment is to leave each day and each moment, and with each hour, making hte most of the time and opportunity God has given to you.

As God sees the faithfulness you live out with however much you do have, He will bless you.  This doesn't just apply to money, but certainly it includes it.  Why would God bless anyone with more of what they don't show to be able to handle?  More never makes a problem go away.  It only enhances it, like gasoline poured over a fire trying to put it out!  For one who struggles with time management, it's not more time that they need, but better use of the time they have.  It applies to time, money, responsibility, relationships, and the list goes on.

What are you doing with what God has given you thus far?  Would you trust you with more?
