Build a Life From Small Choices TODAY
Can I give you one more piece of food from heaven before we go to the food bar?
Some of this might seem very large to you, like, “This all sounds wonderful and Biblical, but I don’t know how to do this. Where do I start?” It can be overwhelming. Does anyone feel that at all?
Here’s where you start: Make a choice to do an act of kindness for one person, in one situation. Build a life by making small choices to love God and each other and get outside of your comfort zones. Make choices to burst the bubbles and to act in some small way today, one at a time and build a life out of those choices. If everyone does that, we will see and experience the Life of God together, in greater measure than you ever dreamed and it will make Jesus very happy.
We can’t do a “big thing” which will instantly change it all. But we can make a small choice and refuse to give in or retreat back into our flesh. We can refuse to be afraid or selfish or lazy and instead make a choice. “God, I offer You this one little gift. It’s not very much, but I’m going to call a brother and confess something and ask him to pray with me about something.” I will do this one little thing. I’m going to take a gift of food over to a brother and sister’s house. I know they don’t have very much, so I’m not going to make a big deal out of it—I’m just going to do it. Or…I’m going to go to someone’s house today and read a scripture with them that meant a lot to me today. That’s all. It takes two minutes.
“God, I offer you this one little tiny gift. I can’t do a ‘big thing,’ but I can offer You this one little two-minute gift of myself as a gift to You. I want to do it to please You and to help my brothers and sisters.” If everyone in the church “from the least to the greatest,” as the Bible says, does that everyday, then you have that mosaic we were talking about earlier. All those little pieces start to come together to look like Jesus. He said, “This is how all men will know you are My disciples—by the love they see that you have one for another.” The little things we can do. The big things…who is equal to such a task? This is all too big for us. But the little things we can all do and God will put the picture together as we do those little things.
Like a big Tapestry woven into Perfection!
