Whoever is faithful in a very little is faithful also in much; and whoever is dishonest in a very little is dishonest also in much—Luke 16:10
Jesus tells the parable of the dishonest manager. His master demanded a complete audit of the company due to a report that he was stealing the money. He was about to be fired for mismanagement of funds. What did the manager do? He was forced to make fast friends. One by one, he called in the people who owed his master huge unpaid debts and drastically reduced it by eliminating the dishonest interest. Jesus said we should imitate this man who thought about his future and used what little he had left to make provision for himself. Are we just as shrewd in using what God has entrusted us with to make friends in these last days?
Then Jesus said, “Whoever is faithful in a very little is faithful also in much; and whoever is dishonest in a very little is dishonest also in much.” Managing the little God has entrusted to us is a big thing for God. It’s a test to see whether we’ll be faithful with far greater things. Do you want God to entrust you with true spiritual riches? Prove yourself faithful by managing the little or big things he has entrusted to you.
The key word to managing what the Lord has placed in our care is faithfulness. In whatever material form this takes, it should not become a personal possession but a managerial assignment. How you are handling the resources God has entrusted to you? We must always be aware that the proper use of our God-given time, talent and treasure is an integral part of our spiritual journey toward our eternal home.
