Today´s reading:
OT: Joshua 7:16-26, Joshua 8, Joshua 9:1-2
NT: Luke 16:1-18
Ps: Psalm 82
Pr: Proverbs 13:2-3

Today´s notable 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. 11 So if you have not been trustworthy in handling worldly wealth, who will trust you with true riches?

Luke 16:10-11 (NIV)

We can discern our character best not by looking at how we deal with major, conspicuous situations, decisions, and responsibilities; but rather, how we deal with the seemingly insignificant, inconspicuous ones. In fact, our character is the result of the sum of such. If we wish to change our character, we do so progressively, choosing wisely with small decisions, and acting faithfully with minor responsibilities. Our stewardship of our worldly resources constitutes a training and proving ground for God's greater purpose for us not only in this life, but also for our eternal reward.
