Stories, thoughts and reflections on the Bible from the WSFC Staff.
“Whosoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much and whosoever 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 elses property, who will give you property of your own? Luke 16:10-12
This scripture always reminds of finances and taking good care of what you have now so that one day you might be trusted with a lot! But today this scripture struck a different chord in my heart. We become so focused with “things” and others that we often forget to take care of the inward property we own, called our hearts.
Your heart is so special and essential to who you are, God made you that way. The Holy Spirit wants to come in and refine your heart. Today take time to look at your inward property and present to the Lord your thoughts, concerns and desires. Its time to let God heal the most inward parts of your being, let him finally have reign over those places. This is the place we should start and adventure into. If we show the Lord that we will take care of ourselves, imagine the things yet in life you will discover and experience. Because if you faithfully take care of the very first thing God ever gave you, your heart, then there is much yet to gain.
How do you do that? Well you are not alone if you’re asking that question. And I’ll be honest I don’t know any special formula. But that’s the point, you have to put your boots on, trudge through the mud and take the Holy Spirit with you. You are unique and when you allow the Holy Spirit to search your heart, it will be a unique experience. Ask questions, be honest, be humble, be vulnerable. Worship the Lord with all your might, pray with all your mind and shower yourself with the holy word of God.
Read the scripture again and ask the Lord what he wants to reveal to you, through it.
Blessings to you and yours,
