Consider the Small Things
If I cannot do great things, I can do small things in a great way.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (American Baptist Minister, Leader in the Civil Rights Movement, 1st President of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference) 1929-1968

(Matthew 7:13-14) “You can enter God’s Kingdom only through the narrow gate. The highway to hell is broad, and its gate is wide for the many who choose that way. But the gateway to life is very narrow and the road is difficult, and only a few ever find it.”

Of all the many things I have learned throughout my walk and relationship with Jesus Christ thus far, this is one thing you may have heard me say on many occasions: “Things are not always as they appear to be.” Before I understood this, I would easily get distracted or discouraged by things that were said to me by people who did not have my best interest at heart. I suffered all the emotions that were in direct contrast of the Fruit of the Spirit. But I came to a decision where I pulled back and detoxed my spirit with the Word of God, and I received the peace of God. In His peace He showed me how the loud emptiness of the world attacks the light within me to compensate for a greatness it desires to extinguish. It became clear. When I consider the small acts of service – kindness, love, trustworthiness, humility, and such – greatness in Christ is exhilarating and everlasting! Things are not always as they appear to be. Take time to consider the greatness found in the small things you for the Kingdom!
