Small Becomes Big

Matthew 13:32 Though it is the smallest of all your seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and perch in its branches.” (The Holy Bible, New International Version)

From small to big is the cycle of life. We start as infants, small and grow into bigger forms as adults. Faith also starts small and grows with use and proper nourishment (Bible study, prayer, meditation and use.) Most everything starts with small. I know Jesus as my personal Lord and Savior because of a smile from a lady in church. A smile seems like a small thing yet it changed my life. I went from a church member and employee who knew the fact of Jesus being God’s Son to a believer and follower because of that smile. We tend to look for God to use us for big things and we miss out on sowing small seeds that will become big. The question for us today is are we willing to allow God to use us in the small, seemingly ordinary things and allow Him to determine the growth that will come forth? Maybe all He wants us to do this day is say thank you to someone who needs a kind word. Let us pay attention to the little and allow God to bring the growth.
