Some days life, family, ministry is BIG and FULL and feels so significant. Other days it's unseen and small and tedious. This is life and it's both grand and ordinary. But this life is also our gift to GOD and how we treat both the grand and the ordinary says something about how we worship this God.
Luke 16:10 says, "If you are faithful in little things, you will be faithful in large ones. But if you are dishonest in little things, you won't be honest with greater responsibilities."
This scripture isn't just about money but it's really EVERYTHING in our lives, because everything we have is a gift from God and we must be faithful in what we have been given. Lately I have noticed that my life is SUCH a gift and the places God has allowed me to be in ministry are SUCH A GIFT. I feel like things are growing and evolving and I just want to honor God in it all and be faithful with what I have been given. GOD help me be faithful!!
There is a little boy in our road named Logan. EVERYONE knows Logan. Logan comes to our front door EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. He is looking mostly for Keller, but he is just looking for attention, love, someone to listen to his stories. My time daily talking to Logan is very little but in God's eyes it's also VERY BIG. God wants us to be faithful in the huge moments but also, and maybe especially, in the little moments with Logan.
God has just moved in my heart to tell me that He sees how I am sewing into the big things and especially into the little things. Our hearts are not most revealed when we work hard at the big things that everyone sees and notices, but our hearts are truly known when we give everything in the little, the things no one will see or ever hear about. It's GOD that we are doing this all for and HE is the audience.
Serve with beauty and boldness in the LITTLE.
