Little Is Much

We live in a world where bigger is usually seen as better.  A bigger house; bigger job; bigger bank account; bigger TV screen; bigger stores; bigger selections; bigger sales; bigger churches; bigger buildings; bigger budgets.  It’s not that these things are bad, but I was thinking this morning about how God likes to use the little.

A little couple in the Garden of Eden; a little Joseph being thrown in a pit; a little baby Moses in a basket; a little David watching sheep and slinging little stones; a little Moabite girl named Ruth; a little Jewish girl named Esther; a little widow with a little flour and a little oil; a little servant girl of Naaman’s wife; a little young man named Daniel; a little town of Nazareth; a little couple named Joseph and Mary; a little dirty cave; a little carpenter family; a little boy with little loaves and fishes; a little woman of Samaria; a little group of disciples; a little man named Paul; a group of little churches; a little man named John banished on the little isle of Patmos………

It’s a pretty big list of little things and it isn’t nearly complete.  We could add some things today. 

A little mommy singing little songs to her little children.   A little daddy reading from a little Bible as they gather around a little bed at night.

A little smile to a little stranger.

A little card in the mail.

A little phone call to encourage.

A little hug.

A little prayer.

God uses the weak, the little, to confound the mighty.

Let’s remember the words to that old hymn:  Little is much, if God is in it.

God wants us to give Him our little and watch Him use it in a big way.
