What would you do if you had $1 million?
He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much. Luke 16:10
What would you do if you had a million dollars? Well, let me tell you a good test of what you would do—it’s what you’re doing with that hundred dollars you have right now. Are you saving it? Spending it? Sharing it?
The test of what you would do in the spiritual realm is seen by what you do in the physical and monetary realm. And if you can't be trusted with money, God cannot trust you with spiritual power.
Many of us do not have spiritual blessings because we simply haven't been faithful with finances. Because we've not been faithful with finances, God doesn't bless us spiritually.
If you will get materially right, God will bless you spiritually. It doesn't have to be big, it doesn’t have to be much, but if you'll just take what God has placed in your trust and do right with whatever you have, then God says, “I can bless you spiritually.”
Frankly, the reason some of us are not getting our prayers answered, don't understand the Bible more than we do, and have such a poor witness is that we haven't been faithful in that which is least. We haven't been faithful in the material things. We simply haven’t been faithful with the small things in our lives.
Are you hoping for something in your life? Be faithful in something little so you’ll be faithful when something more significant comes along.
