Proverbs 16:8
Better a little with righteousness than much gain with injustice. 

There are some small verses that fly in the face of our natural inclinations! When Jesus taught us to pray he said “give us TODAY our daily bread” not enough for the next week or year but sufficient for today and that is a sign of where our security lies. Do we trust God and do it his way or the way of the world – bend the rules a little, ignore the needs of others a bit to ensure that we get a good share. The Lords “little” comes with so many additional blessings – joy, peace, fellowship, purpose, – the security of being a part of his family.

Lord Jesus, help us to have the same attitude as you, that we might find joy and security in serving in your way.
