He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in that which is much. Luke 16:10
In order to be commissioned as a missionary, a man had to appear before the superintendent of missions. His appointment was set for five in the morning. It was a snowy morning, but he was there. He waited until eight o'clock.
Finally, the superintendent came and asked him two simple questions. Then he said, “Thank you. You're dismissed.” The aspiring missionary said, “Thank you for your time.” In his report, the superintendent wrote, “This man will make an excellent missionary. He came at an early hour without a murmur; that shows self-sacrifice. He was there on time; that shows character. He waited without grumbling; that shows patience. He answered very simple questions in a straightforward manner; that shows humility.”
Faithfulness, lack of grumbling, patience, self-sacrifice, humility, those are some of the character traits God wants to find in you. And when He asks you to do something, it may not make sense or seem important, but let God determine what's important.
