Little Things

“If you are faithful in little things, you will be faithful in large ones.” -Luke 16:10

Here is what I’m wondering: What “little things” in my life am I ignoring because I’m in too much of a hurry to get to something that I perceive will be bigger and better?

Sometimes I feel like I am waiting for Life (big L!) to happen, when it is actually going on right under my nose, disguised as everyday moments like listening to one of my patients who feels sad, or going on a walk with a friend, or making dinner when I would rather be lounging on the couch with a glass of chardonnay (don’t worry, I do that too).

Today I am asking God to give me new eyes to start seeing the “little things” as opportunities to be faithful to Him; moments in which I can pay attention to my actual, messy, beautiful life.

“Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin…” -Zechariah 4:10
