“Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much…”
“I have spoken to you of earthly things and you do not believe; how then will you believe if I speak of heavenly things?”
It seemed the Lord was showing me tonight that these verses can refer to how we manage and steward and understand time. He gives us time in this temporal world and watches to see who we will use it. And if we do well (according to His idea of “well” – heh heh), then He is ready to entrust us with heavenly, eternal things!
Sometimes, when we experience God’s tangible Presence, Eternity invades our temporal reality and time seems to disappear, as it is overwhelmed and displaced by His eternal, infinite Gloriousness. And as we experience Him like this, everything in our lives begins to be transformed. But if we want to experience this infusion, we need to approach and esteem temporal time rightly — by spending a lot of it on Him, being willing to lavish Him with one of the few types of currency that really impresses Him — our time.
