Devotion: Be trustworthy

4

Luke 16 : 12 ” And if you have not proved faithful in that which belongs to another [whether God or man], who will give you that which is your own?”

Before you are trusted with your own, you must be be faithful with someone’s. This means if you are now assigned some duties or roles by someone, you  should do it with diligence and be successful before you can be entrusted with your own.

BibleThis is the reason why many great men of God were serving someone else before doing their own. Moses was taking care of animals of his father in law before called to lead people of God. Joshua was first servant of Moses before he was called to lead Israelites. Elisha was a servant of Elijah first.

Jesus was a carpenter in His earthly fathers shop working faithfully before starting his ministry. David was looking after his dad’s animals before he became king. Ephesians 6 : 7 ” Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not men.”

Help someone to be a success and you are making your own success story. Its a seed that you plant for the future and that is why you should not work as if you are doing it for someone but for the Lord.Colossians 3 : 22-23 ”

Servants, obey in everything those who are your earthly masters, not only when their eyes are on you as pleasers of men, but in simplicity of purpose [with all your heart] because of your reverence for the Lord and as a sincere expression of your devotion to Him.

Whatever may be your task, work at it heartily (from the soul), as [something done] for the Lord and not for men.”

Promote yourself by working faithfully in your given assignment whether in employment  or  church or elsewhere. Even if the role looks insignificant, its a seed for your future success story. The way you treat your superior is the way your juniors will do to you when you start your own.

Confession

I will be faithful in another person’s as I earn a promotion to my own. In Jesus Name. Amen.
