Attention to detail

The American rock band Van Halen, before agreeing to perform at a rock concert, always demand that the organisers provide bowls of M&Ms with all the brown ones removed. Now this may seem like petulance, but there’s actually a reason for it. The band uses nine semi-trailer loads of equipment and the technical details associated with their performances are so precise that they can’t risk any slip-ups. The brown M&Ms are just a test to see if the promoters really have read the specifications.
It’s an illustration of what Jesus meant when he said, ‘Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with very much.’ To God, the evidence of our trustworthiness is not so much in our major accomplishments, but in our faithfulness in the small things of life which others may not even notice.
