PIONEER LESSON #5 - A LITTLE GOES A LONG WAY
I’ve heard people say that you do not have any more wealth or resource than God can trust you with. I am not convinced that this is entirely true.
Some of the most honest people in the world have also been among the poorest. Some of the most dishonest have accumulated great wealth.
If we have a shortage of funds to fulfill our vision we need to focus on having integrity with our current resource. That does not ensure that dollars will follow, but that we will grow in the way God intends. Jesus said these words about trustworthiness.
The emphasis is on personal integrity and not on a values-based system to grow your wealth. Whether you have very little or excessive resource, the heart is what matters. We need to learn honesty when we have little. Both God and the community are looking for people that are wise and honest in conducting business. Sometimes, that integrity will cause people to entrust you with great resource. But little or much, God is watching your heart and storing up eternal treasure according to your integrity.
