The Kingdom of God is in little things. The mark of faithfulness to God, the mark of obedience to God, is not the big things.
It’s the little things. It’s the small acts of faithfulness.
That’s where it all starts. That’s where it all begins.
With the little things.
Listen to what Jesus says today in Mark 4:30-32:
And he said, “With what can we compare the kingdom of God, or what parable shall we use for it? It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when sown on the ground, is the smallest of all the seeds on earth, yet when it is sown it grows up and becomes larger than all the garden plants and puts out large branches, so that the birds of the air can make nests in its shade.”
So often in our lives, we spend our time looking at “big” things that we should do for God. Don’t do that. Don’t wait for the “big” things to be faithful.
Be faithful with the “small” things. Because, there aren’t small things.
God, through His power, turns small things into big things.
So, today, serve, smile, laugh, care. Be friendly. Speak kindly. Show grace. Care. Pray. Read.
Small things. That aren’t small.
And when these “small” things are done for God, and His glory, He will do amazing things.
Let’s be faithful with the “small” things. And God will do amazing things.
