In Luke 16, verses 10 through 12, Jesus says, “If you are faithful in little things, you will be faithful in large ones. But if your are dishonest in little things, you won’t be honest with greater responsibilities. And if you are untrustworthy about worldly wealth, who will trust you with the true riches of heaven? And if you are not faithful with other people’s things, why should you be trusted with things of your own?”
These are some interesting questions that Jesus is asking us, and these verses are something we can sit and meditate on, and try to reflect on how these questions apply to us and what we thing our own answers may be.
Are we dishonest in little things? I know it is commonplace for human beings to think that little things don’t matter, and are not as serious as larger issues. Jesus is telling us here that honesty matters whether the issue is large or small, and that we really need to look at our own behavior and see if there are places where we are dishonest because we tell ourselves that it is such a little thing that it won’t matter.
Jesus wants our behavior to reflect what his own would be; in a verse I blogged about last night Paul urges us to choose behavior that brings honor to Christ. We reflect the image of Christ when we become his followers, and everything we do is a reflection of our beliefs when we openly espouse faith in Jesus and obedience to his commandments, so it is worthwhile to look at our behavior and make sure that we are being honest in all of our conduct.
