Is Any Part of Your Life Dishonest?
He who is faithful in what is least is faithful also in much; and he who is unjust in what is least is unjust also in much. Luke 16:10.
Look carefully at this verse. Jesus is saying that when a person is unfaithful in the small things, he will be unfaithful in greater things as well. He didn’t say “may be” or “could be” unfaithful. It says he is. If you would steal so much as a 15-cent pencil and carry it home from the office, you’ve made a place for the devil.
You say, “Wait a minute….” No, this is what the Bible says. A person who would steal a 15-cent pencil has the potential of stealing a $150,000 payroll. When you are unfaithful in that which is least, the Bible says you are unfaithful. Period.
That dawned on me the other day. I used to say, “Well, if I’m capable of stealing a little, then I’m capable of stealing a lot.” That isn’t what God says. He says if you are unfaithful in that which is least, you are unfaithful in that which is much, because with God thievery is thievery. It makes no difference.
If there’s an area of dishonesty in your life, that area will be the devil’s campground. Examine your heart. Does any part of your life fall short of impeccable, indisputable, complete honesty? Repent of that today and change it.
