He who is faithful in a very little thing is faithful also in much; and he who is unrighteous in a very little thing is unrighteous also in much.
It is the little things that make any relationship extra good, extra meaningful!
The little love note you find tucked into your clothes when you are away on a trip, put there by your spouse. The little words spoken in kindness.
And also, when you find that a person is honest about little things that don’t matter very much, you trust their honesty when a big thing comes up.
We sometimes say to our children, “If we find that we can trust you in this, then maybe we will talk about letting you do that”.
It is a principle of life, isn’t it? The way you handle the little things says a lot about how you handle the big things. Because this is true, we need to pay much closer attention to the “little things” in life. In reality, they are not little things at all.
I remember a man from India saying to me once, “Little tigers grow into big tigers, and big tigers kill”. Sometimes we find it easier to commit the big things of our life to God than the little things. Our sin nature wants to hang on to those little things. What little things are holding you back? It’s time to give them to God.
