Summary: At times, huge attention is given for big matters but alas we slip and fall in small matters and thereby our witness as Christians suffers drastically!
Small things really matters!
Romans 13:8 “Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law.”
At times, huge attention is given for big matters but alas we slip and fall in small matters and thereby our witness as Christians suffers drastically! Let me just mention a few:
If you have used your friend’s credit card for an urgent purchase, make sure you jot it down in your diary and pay them back promptly.
How about filling petrol and returning the car to your friend who graciously helped you when in need? It is downright callous to empty the petrol tank and return the car, even if you had used it for Christian ministry. Let us be sensitive in such matters!
The amount may be small negligible amount, borrowed for mobile recharge, whatever, I repeat whatever, however close they may be, promptly return. It would speak volumes of your pristine, immaculate character.
It would be delicate when there is ‘team lunch’ or ‘discussion over lunch’ in offices, one person pays through the credit card and the others royally forget! Be cautious! Pay back.
Make it a point to reply to invitations, don’t put them in the back-burner, if the reply is negative, it is all the more important you inform and save them the expenses.
I had enclosed ten minutes sermon of being CAREFUL, closely related to this message, you should surely listen to it , dont miss it, you would be blessed. Click HERE.
Don’t really see the point of people dissing the most important advices as mentioned above and spending tons of time running around the church! Let us be a good witness to start with! Be sensitive to the feeling of others! Pay back. Are you listening?
