Faithful in the little things.
Faithful in the large things.
Faithful in all things.
These three descriptions perfectly describe Phoebe, a woman we meet in Romans 16:1-2. She is a living example of Jesus’ statement that “he who is faithful in what is least is faithful also in much” (Luke 16:10).
Phoebe was not one of the leaders of any of the churches in and around Corinth. But she faithfully provided her vital service to the people where she lived and also in her ministry to the apostle Paul. Because of her faithfulness, Phoebe was given the responsibility of hand-delivering a letter—the book of Romans—to the church in Rome! Can you imagine the Bible without the book of Romans?
Are you faithful in the little things—like giving generously of your time and energy to your church? By helping others, you are providing a great service to God and His people. And who knows, one day God may ask you to provide Him with even greater service! Phoebe served faithfully in what was least…and proved faithful also in much.
A woman’s day is full of challenges and opportunities. Let the wisdom of God show you how to thrive through it all in Elizabeth George’s newest book, Proverbs for a Woman’s Day.
