    Is cheerfulness a hindrance to holiness or an expression of it? Can sanctity be earned by an extraordinary crown of martyrdom AND by an ordinary life of tedium? This captivating story of Father Francis Xavier Seelos reveals how an accumulated faithfulness in little things adds up to a meaningful life well lived! With a little jawbone, Samson slew an army. David took a little stone and brought down a giant. With just a little faith, great things can be accomplished. The Danger of Little Sins In the story of the mustard seed, Jesus wants us to understand that eternal salvation can pivot on a variety of little things in our lives, often more than we.

      Part of the chorus says, “Faithful in little things, ‘cause little things make big things ” I think it is by Patch the Pirate. I know the song is trying to teach our children to be faithful in the small things, but recently I have been noticing how my God is faithful – right down to the little things. It challenges me to consider my own attitudes toward the “little things” in my life. It challenges me to think of faithfulness more broadly, to seek to live for you in every part of life, not just the “big things.” This passage encourages me not to worry if my life seems to be filled with “little things.”.

    I’ve been meditating on Jesus’ words in Luke , “He who is faithful in a very little thing is faithful also in much; and he who is unrighteous in a very little thing is unrighteous also in much.” It’s a great leadership principle from the ultimate leader. When I think of those who did well with the little they had been given, I think of those great men and women in the Old. But it is important to realize that faithfulness in the smaller responsibilities forms the basis for being entrusted with greater responsibilities. The Lord pointed to this basic principle in Luke , “The one who is faithful in a very little is also faithful in much; and the one who is dishonest in a very little is also dishonest in much.”.
