Underhill: faithfulness in small things

Wednesday, June 15, 2011
    Feast of Evelyn Underhill, Mystical Writer, 1941
    The Lord answered, “Who then is the faithful and wise manager, whom the master puts in charge of his servants to give them their food allowance at the proper time? It will be good for that servant whom the master finds doing so when he returns. I tell you the truth, he will put him in charge of all his possessions.”
    —Luke 12:42-44 (NIV)
    Only those who try to live near God and have formed the habit of faithfulness to Him in the small things of our daily life, can hope in times of need for that special light which shows us our path. To do as well as we can the job immediately before us, is the way to learn what we ought to do next.
    ... Evelyn Underhill (1875-1941)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have taught Your people to follow You in small things and great.
