Your Test For A Higher Office

— Sola Sorinolu

“…For the LORD does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart” 1Sam.16:7

When God decided to appoint and anoint the second king in Israel, He only had one man in mind. And that was because He knew David’s heart.

David was a man who had proven himself for the top job by how much he cared for defenseless creatures—his father’s sheep. David had risked his life to defend them against a lion and a bear.

The Natural Man Vs The Spiritual Man

Do you have your sight set on your company’s top job? If you affirm that, then I’ll have to ask you: How much do you defend the seemingly unimportant members of staff against the ‘lions’ and ‘bears’ of your company?

Have you ever championed the welfare of your company’s office assistants, front desk personnels, drivers, etc. Or have you always been dismissive of it?

In God’s plan, your genuine concern for the good of the ‘small fry’ is what qualifies for top power.

The Role Of God In Salvation

It was Jesus’ decision to sacrifice His life for the little you and me that gave Him His all-powerful name(Phil.2:7-11). He didn’t see us as ‘too small’ to pay the ultimate price for.

If you can prove to God that you can take care of the pennies, He may entrust to you the dollars. Don’t fail your test!
