The Little Things

“We must not, in trying to think about how we can make a big difference, ignore the small daily differences we can make which, over time, add up to big difference that we often cannot foresee.” ~Marian Wright Edelman

The tiny things add up. When working for the Lord, which we are all inevitably doing as called out ones, we must not neglect the tiny tasks by working tirelessly on the big ones. Sometimes we make a bigger long term difference, a more impactful difference, by stopping in our tracks and listening to a friend, worshipping with a song, writing an encouraging letter, smiling at the overwhelmed momma in line or just resting to recharge. We have no idea what out little acts of kindness will produce, but enormous armies may be moved by the morale of the commander. An enormous ship is moved by a tiny rudder. A mighty inferno is started by a spark. This information is true for good or evil. How exciting to be a proponent of good! How fabulous to be the anonymous reason someone did not resort to violence, felt better, forgave, sent good on to someone else, etc. How fabulous it would be to stand before the Lord and hear Him say that we did what He wanted. What a tremendous and beautiful thought!
