15¢ OR $150,000—To God It Is the Same

Adrian Rogers

“He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much.” – Luke 16:10. 

Look carefully at this verse. Jesus is saying that when a person is unfaithful in the small things, he will be unfaithful in greater things as well. He didn’t say “may be” unfaithful or “could be” unfaithful. It says he is. If you would steal so much as a 15-cent pencil and carry it home from the job—if it doesn’t belong to you, you’ve made a place for the devil.

You say, “Wait a minute!” This is what the Bible says. A person who would steal a 15-cent pencil has the potential of stealing a $150,000 payroll. When you are unfaithful in that which is least, the Bible says you are unfaithful. That dawned on me the other day. I used to say, “Well, if I’m capable of stealing a little, then I’m capable of stealing a lot.” That isn’t what God says. God says if you are unfaithful in that which is least, you are unfaithful in that which is much, because with God thievery is thievery. It makes no difference

Ask yourself this question: “Is there any area of my life that is not impeccably, indisputably, completely honest?” If there’s an area of dishonesty of your life, that will be the devil’s campground.
