Sneaker wanted to live in the house but I did not want Sneaker to live in the house. We agreed to disagree for several days. Then one day, he appeared at the door and dropped a rather large mouse at my feet. This did not endear Sneaker to me in any way.
In retrospect, I realize that I rejected the best that Sneaker could bring. He wasn’t about to show up with a bar of chocolate, now was he?
So often, we think we’ve given God our best, when in reality it was likely just a mouse to him. Yet he graciously accepts the nonsensical bits we offer and says “Well done, you good and faithful servant.”
“His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’ (Matthew 25:21, NIV)
Prayer – Lord, thank you for counting our mousy bits as worthwhile. Amen
