‘Faithful over a few things’

A friend once shared a saying that had been passed down in his family from previous generations: “Do you hope one day to have a beautiful mansion? First learn to take great care of the chair you already own.” 

Jesus taught a similar lesson with his parable of the talents (see Matthew 25:14–30). In this story the servants who handled wisely what had been entrusted to them received praise and a reward from their master: “Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things” (verse 23).
