God is trustworthy

Luke 16: 10-12

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.  So if you have not been trustworthy in handling worldly wealth, who will trust you with true riches?  And if you have not been trustworthy with someone else’s property, who will give you property of your own? NIV

Jesus is speaking here.  My word search on “trust” has finally brought me to the new testament.

Jesus is speaking and the pharisees are listening.  These words come at the end of a parable, “The parable of the shrewd manager.”

Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much.

These words ring so true to me.  As my faith has grown, so my trust in God has grown.  And, God has been completely faithful … wholly trustworthy.

I trusted Him with merely a little of myself, and, as I’ve given over more and more of me to Him, I’ve learned that He can be trusted.

In fact, He MUST be trusted with all of it — my hopes, my dreams, my fears and my worries.

God is trustworthy.

That’s what I’ll think about today.

    I am so thankful for your daily faithfulness in combing through God’s word and sharing your findings!

    You are right – we must be faithful in all things, starting with the small. What do we have without His trust? Nothing worth having!

  2. I’m with you…the more of myself I give to Him…the more He reveals of Himself.
