PHILIPPIANS 4:10-19; PSALM 111; LUKE 16:9-15
Those who are trusted with little things can be trusted with great things. Trust is one of the marks of a good steward. No one will leave his store to a sales girl or boy that is not trusted. If you do that you risk your business. To be trustworthy means you’re reliable. Beloved in Christ, our faithfulness in little task is the best proof of our ability in bigger task. We must joke with little things; because one small cloud can hide the sun and dim the glory of the blue. One small string played out of tune can wreck a glorious symphony. Brethren, little things are little things but from them the greatest often grow. The attitudes we display in little things determine if we can be entrusted with the kingdom. We pray that we may do all things well through Christ that strengthens us.
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen.
