Faithful in Little Things

The writer had an experience which helped him to understand more clearly the meaning of our beloved Master's words: "Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things." As he was cycling to a certain place, one part of the road could be seen about two or three miles ahead, and in the distance was what seemed to be a very steep hill, up which, at first sight, he was quite sure he would have to walk. Before this hill was reached, however, he had to go up two or three smaller ones, which only required a certain extra effort, and he was agreeably surprised to find that the hill which had looked so steep in the distance had practically dwindled to nothing, so much so that he was able to ride up the entire distance quite easily.

This experience reminded the writer how he had often looked at big difficulties which he apparently had to overcome, instead of seeing how divine Love had met his need in every past circumstance. He now finds that the more he looks at the blessings he has received since the Christ, Truth, came to him as revealed in Christian Science,—and they are manifold,—the more he is uplifted and given courage to go forward. Mrs. Eddy says in "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. 307), "Never ask for to-morrow: it is enough that divine Love is an ever-present help; and if you wait, never doubting, you will have all you need every moment." The writer sees more and more clearly that as he applies what understanding he has to each small difficulty, all the seemingly big troubles fade into their native nothingness.
