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.
