Do you ever feel like what you do doesn't matter? Or you feel like everyday is the same and you just don't seem to make a difference? I think we all feel this way every now and then even if we're involved in something big and important! But we can't let ourselves feel discouraged about only doing "little" things because those little things can lead to something much bigger! We have to remember Matthew 25:40 - "The King will reply, 'Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me."
A lot of us have dreams for our lives and can't wait to do something "important." But what's important is how you're living right now! Going the extra mile to help those in need. Going out of your way to make someone feel welcome at a new church. Coming home early to kick the soccer ball around with your son. Building someone up with words and actions when you can see they've had a rough day (or even if they haven't). All of these things are so important! We like to get into the mindset of bigger is better when everyday we can be making a difference in the little, simple things! Don't waste your life now dreaming of what could be but instead choose to follow God in complete obedience and make a difference now. God can use you wherever you are and whoever you are. If only we would realize the greater plan God has for His sons and daughters. So come on! Let's go serve the least of these and I think we all will be surprised of how God is going to use it to bring Him glory and shape us for what He has in store for us.
