The Big In The Small

Frances Havergal said this: “Faithfulness to principle is only proved by faithfulness in detail.”

Think about that.

How applicable to the life of a pastor.

I may believe in the principle of servanthood, but am I faithful to the detail of helping with Room In The Inn or at the Charlotte Rescue Mission?

I may believe in the principle of evangelism, but am I faithful to the detail of actually sharing my faith and asking for a response when we bless houses?

I may believe in the principle of prayer, but am I faithful to the detail of gathering people around me to pray?

I may believe in the principle of bible study, but am I faithful to the detail of reading the bible for reasons other than sermon preparation?

I may believe in the principle of innovation, but am I faithful to the detail — and desperately hard work — of innovating?

I may believe in the principle of generosity, but am I faithful to the detail of tithing plus?

I may believe in the principle of leadership, but am I faithful to the detail of having all the hard conversations involved in truly leading?

Faithfulness to principle is only proved in faithfulness in detail.
