How do you approach the inconsequential things in life?
WHAT I’M WEARING:
Let’s blame it on social media.. This continuous desire for the next big thing.
Everyone wants to be impactful; but it seems only in some grandiose way. Go big or go home, right?
The Lord has been speaking to me about the importance of inconsequential things in our lives, and how He requires faithfulness with everything we have been commissioned to do.
Sometimes we think the inconsequential things are not important to God. But it is actually the inconsequential things that are most important. Because if you can steward well the unimportant and small things, then you certainly won’t fumble on the big things.
He who is faithful in what is least is faithful also in much; and he who is unjust in what is least is unjust also in much. Luke 16: 10 NKJV
It’s really hard to become inspired to pursue excellence with menial things. Imagine getting excited about cleaning toilets with excellence. Or posting about Jesus to an audience of 12. If you ask me, I can confirm these are pretty difficult tasks to do, especially when it seems people are doing more impactful things for God. But one thing I know of assurance is that God will not entrust a person with more when he/she is careless with little.
The journey is more important than the destination.
If you carelessly approach the seemingly meaningless things in your life, then why would God consider you faithful with more meaningful ones?
That low level job?
The small room you’re renting?
That degree you’re dreading?
Those stubborn children?
That small ministry?
That 15 year old vehicle?
Those 1000 followers on social media?
They are all important to God, and should be important to you. Be faithful with whatever you deem little in your life and God will trust you to be faithful with more!
