The quest for bigger and better

If you are like me, you often wonder when the “bigger” and “better” will happen in your life. Maybe you suffer from discontentment in a certain area of life (job/career, finances, relationships, spiritual walk, fill-in-the-blank ________). That discontentment could lead to a lack of focus and motivation where you presently are. I believe this is a dangerous zone to enter. Take a look at Luke 16:10 – 12 (NLT) with me… “If you are faithful in little things, you will be faithful in large ones. But if you are dishonest in little things, you won’t be honest with greater responsibilities. And if you are untrustworthy about worldly wealth, who will trust you with the true riches of heaven? And if you are not faithful with other people’s things, why should you be trusted with things of your own?” Look towards the future and plan for it while giving 100% of your energy and attention wherever you are right now. I want to move on and up in a few areas of my life, but maybe I haven’t proved that I’m ready to do so yet. That is a humbling thought.
