  Be faithful in ALL things. If faithfulness is to be part of our character, we need to learn to be faithful in all things, big and small. Jesus says in Luke about how we handle money, “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.”. Faithfulness in Little Things. EGW. As the children of God, we must not lose sight of the fact that we are here on trial, and that we are ourselves deciding our own destiny, for everlasting happiness or for eternal death. We have everything to gain or to lose. We each have a work .

  God does not have to work at being faithful; He is faithful. Faithfulness is an essential part of who He is (Psalm ; Hebrews ). In His faithfulness, God protects us from evil (2 Thessalonians ), sets limits on our temptations (1 Corinthians ), forgives us of sin (1 John ), and sanctifies us (1 Corinthians ; Philippians ). The Faithfulness of God 1Corinthians God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Not too much is taught on the faithfulness of God. Most of the sermons one hears is on our faithfulness and how we should be faithful. Yet God is the One who is Faithful-- even when we are not.

Faithfulness —Our Way of Life. 1 “A God of faithfulness, with whom there is no injustice; righteous and upright is he.” This is how Moses felt in singing a song of praise, extolling the lofty qualities of JehovahOur hearts feel the same way when we come to know Jehovah and the faithfulness he shows toward us. We want to imitate him. Showers of Grasshoppers and Other Miracle Stories From Africa by Bradley Booth.

Few, if any, can suddenly rise to great things who have not been first well trained by little things. The lofty summits of great mountains are only reached by passing first the little paths which lie below.

So lofty standards of faithfulness in great things are only reached by previous training in the little things of lowly duties. Many others have faithfully taught and defended the Bible where biblical teaching caused them great suffering.

But the faithfulness of most Christians is tested and approved by God in ways that will never appear on the printed page. Jesus said, “He who is faithful in a very little thing is faithful also in much” (Luke ).

The missionary Hudson Taylor was fond of saying, “A little thing is a little thing, but faithfulness in little things is a great thing.”Cooking a meal, filling a spreadsheet, buying groceries, wiping a child’s nose — these are little things. But if done faithfully for Christ’s sake, they become greater than all the triumphs and trophies of an unbelieving world.

While God may increase our influence, He still calls us to be faithful in the little things. We never "arrive." Being obedient and faithful is a daily process.

Having more to manage means more responsibility. We must continually rely. Jesus said in Luke“One who is faithful in a very little is also faithful in much, and one who is dishonest in a very little is also dishonest in much.” One major thing to notice about this passage is that faithfulness to God’s commands matter, regardless of how we judge the relative significance of that particular command.

However small your talent, God has a place for it. That one talent, wisely used, will accomplish its appointed work.

By faithfulness in little duties, we are to work on the plan of addition, and God will work for us on the plan of multiplication. These littles will become the most precious influences in His work.

These littles will become the most precious influences in His work. Matthew Christ shows that if we are not faithful in trivial matters, we cannot expect to be faithful when confronted with weightier matters.

God tests our faithfulness in our day-to-day activities, and it is in them that real Christianity emerges. The Laodicean attitude, one of indifference to the things God considers important, often reveals itself as faithlessness.

You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.’ Matthew ESV. Sometimes, faithfulness means abandoning fear and going for it. When we explore a new interest or activity, it’s normal to be tempted to let things get in the way of following through.

By faithfulness in little things, Elisha was preparing for weightier trusts. Day by day, through practical experience, he gained a fitness for a broader, higher work. He learned to serve; and in learning this, he learned also how to instruct and lead.

The lesson is for all. Be faithful in little and allow God to prepare you for greater things. Sometimes before God answers a certain prayer or before He has a greater opportunity for us, He has to mold our character.

He has to build experience in us. He has to prepare us for things that might happen down the line. Moses worked as a shepherd for 40 years.Jesus cares deeply about the little things that His people do to bless others in His church.

He takes note of them as precious acts of service. He uses the little things that His people do to carry on His work in the world through His church. May God give all of us grace to cultivate faithfulness in the little things that we do.
