“God expects us to care for the need He presents us with”

People often say they do not know what God wants them to do.  However, they may be missing God’s will by looking for something really hard when He is actually asking them to do something simple.  Think of it this way:

“Why would God call you to do a big thing when you are not obedient in the simple things?”

If God asks you to call a friend when you had planned to watch your favorite TV show what do you do?  If God asks you to hug a person whom you barely know and say to them that God loves them how do you react?  Remember: he who is faithful in little will be faithful in much.

God is in the simple things too

God entrusts you with great things only after you are faithful in the simple things. Our Lord gives tasks that have far-reaching consequences to faithful servants.  If you do the simple things He puts before you on a daily basis, you are given more.

God says,

“For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.”

Matthew 13:12

In conclusion, the next time God asks a simple thing, be faithful to follow it through exactly as He commands.  God counts the faithful worthy of greater responsibility.
