As we progress through life, we often want to know if there is a better way at carrying out the daily responsibilities that are unavoidable. Is there a better way to be doing this? Am I doing this right? The Benham brothers have impacted many through their life story of what God has done in their lives, chronicled in the book Whatever the Cost.
As the Benham brothers shares, it is often in the daily grind of the ordinary that sets us apart. “Faithfulness is proved in the ordinary. We’ve heard it said that God uses ordinary people to do extraordinary things, and that’s true. But God also uses extraordinary people to do very ordinary things. Faithfulness to God is tested in the fires of the ordinary.” How very true this is. It is important to understand that promotion does not come from the hands of men, but from God.
For example, they highlight how we should respond if we are looking to begin our own business. “The secret to having your own business- be a faithful employee in someone else’s business.” The same is applicable if you are wanting to own a home. “The secret to owning your own home is to be faithful in the one you are renting.” The same is true regarding finances. “The secret to having more money is to be faithful with the money you have now.”
This is such a powerful reality to comprehend. How many people are wanting to win the lottery, yet they are not even faithful with the money that they have presently been entrusted with? If we are not faithful with a dollar, we cannot be faithful with a million dollars. Have you seen this same understanding? How does this wisdom impact you? We want to hear from you. Hear the full conversation on how to be a better steward with what God has entrusted to each of us, and so much more.
