…Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much.
Luke 16:10 (AMP)
After selecting a good steward who has increased his resources. What follows is assigning to him their new responsibilities to which they ought to steward. Promotion is the result of been a steward and with every new responsibility comes new 33³.
The process of deleting work is tied completely to the stewardship level that person is that. For example, in the parable of the talents, the Master gave the three servants talents, according to each one’s ability to manage. To one he gave five talents, to another he gave two talents and to the last he gave one. He gave each according to his ability to manage.
In story of Joseph, Pharaoh entrusted to him the entire nation of Egypt, this shows that Joseph demonstrated the ability to manage the nation. We see his continuous progression in management since, he was sold as a slave to Potiphar. He did so well as a slave that Potiphar made him the manager of his entire household except for his wife.
Later on when he was thrown in prison, he was also promoted by the warden to manage all the prisoners in the prison. Joseph was so good that he was never supervised both in Potiphar’s house and in prison. Yet he still continued to develop his gift of interpreting dreams.
Now the LORD through Pharaoh promoted him to manage the entire nation of Egypt. Reviewing Joseph’ history shows that he was a good steward, through the different tests he underwent, his character was developed and strengthened, he was therefore the best suited man for the job and the LORD set Him up for his promotion.
Another important principle to learn is that whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much” (Luke 16:10). Our management ability determines how much of the more that God has for us has to be held back from us. God will give us as much of His more as we an be entrusted with.
