“The one who is faithful in a very little is also faithful in much, and the one who is dishonest in a very little is also dishonest in much.

[Luke 16:10]

Love the Lord, all you faithful followers of his! The Lord protects those who have integrity, but he pays back in full the one who acts arrogantly.

[Ps 31:23]

~~~~~~

The trivial round, the common task,

Would furnish all we ought to ask;

Room to deny ourselves; a road

To bring us, daily, nearer God.

~ J. KEBLE ~

Exactness in little duties is a wonderful source of cheerfulness.

~ F. W. FABER ~

The unremitting retention of simple and high sentiments in obscure duties is hardening the character to that temper which will work with honor, if need be, in the tumult or on the scaffold.

~ R. W. EMERSON ~

We are too fond of our own will. We want to be doing what we fancy mighty things; but the great point is, to do small things, when called to them, in a right spirit.

~ R. CECIL ~

It is not on great occasions only that we are required to be faithful to the will of God; occasions constantly occur, and we should be surprised to perceive how much our spiritual advancement depends on small obediences.
