I had the privilege to spend time with one of our missionary friends and sister-in-Christ this weekend. She shared something with me that was profound. She was talking about how God uses "small things". She then made a comparison to the human body and the eye. She said that the eye is very important, yet rather small compared to the leg.
That gave me tons of encouragement. Unfortunately the world we live in looks down on small things. Small churches. Small houses. Small bank accounts. Small (simple) minds. But, if our focus is on Jesus, then it doesn't matter how "small" things seem. Jesus uses the "small" church, the "small" and simple person, the small bank account (remember the widow who gave her "small" offering) to do His work. May we take heart, when our hearts are completely committed to Jesus, He accepts our "smallness" and makes something great from it....and to me, that is no "SMALL" thing!!!
I will close with the words I read this morning from 2 Chronicles 16:9: For the eyes of the LORD range throughout the earth to show Himself strong for those whose hearts are completely His.
