The Bible commends faithfulness.
[Luke 16:10] – “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.”
[Galatians 5:22-23] – “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, kindness, goodness faithfulness, gentleness, self-Control. Against such there is no law.”
[Romans 14:12] – “So then each one of us shall give account of himself to God.”
The Bible also tells us that greatness is found in servanthood.
[Matthew 20:26] – “Yet it shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among you, let him be your servant.”

The big things of God’s kingdom are so often found in mustard seeds; faith, carefully planted and grown. We do this with hearts ready to serve, ready to love, ready to give glory to God in whatever we do, wherever we are. We do this when we bring joy into our workplaces even when facing challenges there, when we greet a stranger and embrace them with love, when we give up our time to serve others whether in building friendships, in a ministry team, or on the mission field.
We might not all write books, or speak at big conferences, but we can all be faithful and it is this faithfulness in little things that grows our character. So, let us be faithful when we wash the dishes at home, when we prepare something to share with our life group, when we attend the worship team practice, and when we greet the person sitting alone.
Let us be faithful and remember that whatever we do, we do it unto God!
[Colossians 3:17] – “And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.”
