Word Art Wednesday #18

It's Wednesday, time for our weekly word art!!!   This week, instead of a scripture, we have a quote from Mother Teresa...

I can only speculate about what Mother Teresa's motivation was for this quote, but it does bring to mind Luke Chapter 16 and the Parable of the Shrewd Manager, particularly verse 10:

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.    Luke 16:10  NIV

I think what Jesus is telling us here is that if we cannot be faithful in the small things, the everyday stuff,  how in the world can we be trusted with the really important things?  Our faithfulness is not determined by the size or importance of the matter, but by our character and how we handle the task or situation.  So as Mother Teresa said, be faithful in small things...because that is a true reflection on how we will handle the bigger things.

For my layout I used a couple of  pictures of my 2 Tims raking leaves. We have lots of trees in our yard so that makes for an abundance of leaves. It's not a job the either of them particularly love to do, but they do it faithfully every year.
