Luke 16:10 Scripture Meditation by Stephen Taylor

Luke 16:10

“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.” 

 

Jesus says there are only two choices – trustworthy or dishonest; which one are you???

 

Lately, I have found myself reflecting on the saying, “Don’t sweat the small things” and just how backward it is. Let me start by saying, I’m not saying to worry, but what I am saying is the little things matter.

 

As I was reading and praying this morning, God brought to mind Judas, who betrayed Jesus. Judas didn’t go from fully devoted to Jesus to betraying Him over night. I mean, yes, it did happen one night, but the breadcrumbs leading up to it are evident. It says that Judas used to help himself to their ministry’s money. So, little by little, Judas allowed the enemy to get that foothold, and then, it was too late. With each little decision to take that money and feed that greed, Judas came one step closer to betraying Jesus.

 


I’m sure when Judas started out, he had no plans of doing this, but little compromises lead to big disasters. I have watched it play out in my life. It can start out as just flirting or being playful, but if I’m not careful, it can turn into full-blown lust and sin. Or it can start out as playfully joking, but then you go too far ,and someone’s feelings get hurt. My point is, if we catch it early, we can handle it better. If you were gonna fight a bear, would you rather fight it as a cub or wait for it to grow up and get stronger??? It’s usually not the big things that take me off my path but rather the small things I didn’t see coming!!! 

 

Be encouraged and be encouraging!!! I love you all, God bless, and glory to God!!!
