Faithful in small things…….Luke 16:10

 

Do not despise small beginnings  (Zechariah 4:10) When I first began my quest for leadership, I would talk to my supervisor to gain perspectives and insights that would benefit me in my future goals. he said a lot of leaders desire to be upwardly mobile, Therefore they seek high profile assignments that showcase their talents and skills because they believe it will lead to their next promotion.

However he explained that the focus should be on completing all your assignments with excellence regardless to whether they seem big or unimportant. While my supervisor was not a man of faith, I often thought of “faithfulness in small things” When I reflected on the life of King David.

King Davids path to the royal throne began with his first assignment of protecting the sheep. A sheep herder was not a prominent task in Israel, However David was faithful because he had a heart for God and was willing to do anything God asked him to do (Acts 13:22). David took advantage of his solitude with the sheep by praising and fellowship with God.

David’s unwavering faithfulness in his assignment provided him the Godly confidence to fight Goliath. “But David said to Saul” Your servant used to keep his fathers sheep, and when a lion or a bear came and took a lamb from its mouth; and when it arose against me, I caught it by its beard, and struck and killed it. “Your servant has killed both lion and bear; and this uncircumcised Philistine will be like one of them, seeing he has defied the armies of the living God” (1Samuel17:34-36)

After defeating Goliath, David eventually became King of Israel. Let’s allow King David’s life to serve as a reminder that we are to be faithful even in what seems like small non-glamorous task.

God tells us not to despise small beginnings (Zechariah 4:10). Your work is more than the completion of a task. Our work has three components: proficiency in the task, attitude, and motive.

We are children of the Kings of Kings. Our goal should be for God to say Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful and trustworthy over a little. I will put you in charge of many things; share in the joy of your master” (Matthew 25:23).
